Challenging Dogmas

by Alex Steelsmith

“[A] Polish-American artist… is training a trio of robotic dogs to paint autonomously…
‘The project… is pushing the boundaries of my art practice’…”


Stippledy, drippledy
canine automatons
painting on canvases
seems like a stretch.

Should they be classified
Will we be shocked by the
prices they fetch?
