The second annual international ArtBots: The Robot Talent Show took place at EYEBEAM Gallery in New York City on July 12-13, 2003. The show featured the work of 22 artists and groups from six countries. Thanks to the work of very many kind and talented people from around the world the show was a great success. We had well over 2000 visitors, as well as local, national, and international press coverage in print, television, and on the web.

Although we call ArtBots a talent show, it's really not about competition. It's about celebrating robotic art, and we think there's a lot to celebrate! So we'd like to congratulate all of the participating artists, and thank them again for their generous participation. They're the ones who made it all happen.

Each year we give out two awards: The Audience Choice Award (each visitor gets to vote for her favorite work) and The Robots' Choice Award (the artists vote for their favorite work). This year's winners are:

Audience Choice Award: LEMUR
Robots' Choice Award: micro.adam & micro.eva

Congratulations to the artists, curators, volunteers, and ArtBots friends from around the world who helped make the show such a success. We'll be back again next year!
