Surreal Machines and Evolving Robots

The art on this page combines ideas from self-replicating machines, futuristic non-anthropoid worlds, surrealism, artificial life, speculative science fiction, evolutionary robotics, ruminations on posthuman intelligences and the nature of xenobiology.  All the artwork shown here is done by hand with graphite pencil and eraser on bristol board or heavy paper.  -A. Nelson
