“Left, right, left, right….yeah, you got it! Now flap,” said penguin to his eager pupil. “If you need more lift, we can get you another balloon too.” If an ant can move a rubber tree plant, then a robot can fly. So can a penguin. Join me in cheering on these best of pals as they reach for the clouds.

Getting to Know Diane

As a kid, Diane Flick often empathized with inanimate objects; she worried a Kleenex box on her headboard felt unloved because she never held it as she did her stuffed animals. Consequently, she would sometimes add it to her plush family for snuggling. Looking through the lenses of playfulness, emotional warmth, and scenes from a dramatic childlike imagination, the ‘bots series seeks to explore the sentience of non-sentient beings.
