More information from organisers:

Within utopian and dystopian landscapes, encounter robots as they experience the best of human emotions: wonder, kindness, empathy, friendship, and love.

Experience this audio-visual exhibition’s otherworldly soundscape which spans 100 years of music by leading artists from Kate Bush to The Beatles, Radiohead to Billie Eilish, Brian Eno to Willy Wonka, all interspersed with birdsong in a garden-like setting.

A Sense of Wonder‘ is gathered together from the digital paintbrush of Matt Dixon, who created his first robot character as part of the series Transmissions in 2006. He has been exploring this preternatural world ever since, including the design of the O2 robot mascot Bubl. Be among the first to play the beta version of his new robot video game, ahead of its international launch.
