I recall the trees, incandescent as copper wires over my head.

No, Robot, No!


The robots aren’t coming – they’re already here. No, Robot, No! is your all-whirring, all-processing artistic guide to robots, AI and digital consciousness.

The role of robots in our present and future is ever in flux. They are, and have been: dolls, toys, servants, pets, experiments, weapons, carers, companions. They threaten to replace us, to exceed us, to exterminate us. And we for our part go on remaking them – in our minds as much as in labs and lairs. From cyborgs to love machines, ethics to algorithms, Wall-E to Roomba, this inquisitive handbook delves into the wires of our lives with machines.

Let No, Robot, No! act as your portable guide to the poetics of AI, automata and digital sentience. Hack into it. Overhaul and overload it. Keep it near you like a whirring clockwork heart.
