Do you need more robot art?
The way LAist sees it, there are two kinds of people in the world. The kind of people who love giant robots with hydraulic claws and flamethrowers, and those that don’t. If you’re one of the first kind, then you’re most likely familiar with the work of Survival Research Labs. SRL’s exhibitions are about flames, fumes, crushing, and rending…done with loud and very dangerous machines.
You can find more Survival Research Labs on YouTube, like this one from their last L.A. performance.
