The A.I.S.S. (Artificial Intelligent Soft Sculpture) is not just interactive but also introspective; reacting to the surroundings it is able to learn from what external stimuli may be encountered. While the mind of the Artificially Intelligent Soft Sculpture is advanced, it’s body- a deer’s body, is in shambles. Cut off at the waist and elbows it remains relatively unanimated except for the blinking of its doe eyes. Contained within this soft exterior is the ultimate combination of advanced robotic technology: a network of sensors, motors, feedback devices, and real foam stuffing. These sculp-tronic features allow the Artificially Intelligent Soft Sculpture to realize the entire gamut of sculptural capabilities. Finally a sculpture is able to experience how it feels to be a sculpture and what it means to be looked at as an object. As the A.I.S.S. is off traveling to distant cultures the work may be exhibited to the public via PowerPoint presentations, video installations, exhibition of the prototype(s), or a combination of these options. - See more at: http://cargocollective.com/AISS
I am writing to you for M. P. Bronstein. His emails seem not to be reaching you - possibly because they are from 1984. For the rest of this letter I will talk about him as Peter.
Peter developed a number of technologies throughout the 70's and 80's which have been sent to us through Soviet means of time travel. I've received/found these objects and documentation from the past. Since receiving Peter's inventions he has been in contact with me; I believe that his emails reach me because we both have Gmail accounts; lucky, huh? He has assigned me with the task of showing the world his Inventions for a Red Future (although I don't have the heart to tell him that there is no longer a U.S.S.R.). But I've taken this assignment seriously anyway and hope to do what I can for Peter. See below for Peter's letter to you and an animation he made illustrating how to use his inventions. To the left you can take a virtual tour of his laboratory.

The Hulk-A-Workshop is a complete exercise regime to cure that after party hangover. Bring your tights, leg warmers, head and wrist bands to come work-out with friends where art, meets sweat, meets motivational speaking in this retro workout class. Oh, and don’t forget to train hard, say your prayers and eat your vitamins.
The Hulk-A-Workshop is something between workshop, sport, installation, drawing, new media and social art. - See more at: http://justintylertate.weebly.com/hulk-a-workshop.html
'Lumberjack à gogo' is both an object and a video; the video which can be viewed here and an object which can be seen here, is a cardboard forest sitting atop a record - when the record plays the forest spins while the central tree stump sits motionless.
