Urge

Chico MacMurtrie who is known to create robotic artwork including this anthropomorphic piece called Urge.



I spent the weekend in San Francisco attending a 3-day comic book/sci-fi convention. During some spare time and when it stopped storming, I was able to go outside and take a few photos like this one at the Yerba Buena Gardens.

It's like the terminator coming to conquer the humans.

It's fascinating but I'm wondering just what he has the urge to do! Have missed your pictures!

Thats a new sculpture since I was last there. I will have to take a peek when I do a trade show there in April. Thanks for the heads up.

Last year I read an article on MacMurtrie's Totemobile which also mentioned the "Urge to Stand." First time I see photos of it. Very interesting.

this kinda art always makes me feel dumb, or dumber, LOL. I'm sure that's not the intent...

I'm not quite sure what the sculpture means either, but Fenix might have figured it out.

Lad, you are funny.

Photowannabe, that's the first time I really noticed the sculptures at the Yerba Buena Gardens. Let me know if it changes in April.
