Once again, the hubris of trying to accomplish anything practical on this physical plane, that might involve gears and cogs of any material, is foiled by the grand spectre of Carnival– it’s all around us. Mardi Gras does not give a sh*t. Mardi Gras is eating all of our hadron collidors. So, friends of Automata, and prospective participants, here’s our last attempt before a respectably slight period of rest after the big day itself, at a brief update, and reassurance that business is never usual.
Your humble rouser of makers of machines of wonder wishes to convey the following:
The deadlines are meant only as sign-posts. We are working with individual artists regarding any extra financial considerations and calculating the basic costs of running Automata this year, from our Ogden gala to the flying robot parade to the takeover of the Ironworks to the pitcher plant choir planned for Models and Miniatures… You need only contact us to begin this discussion. Otherwise, as usual, the curious are welcome to contact us for participation almost to the month of the show.
FLYING ROBOTS? We are doing it for the children! Krewe of Spy vs. Spy hereby declared a true phenomenon. We will hold a picnic and parade, tentatively set for Sunday, Nov. 18. Specific details should be nailed down later this spring.
In the meantime, if you have any questions and need to speak to us right away, you will find us here:
