Chico MacMurtrie

In 1992 MacMurtrie formed Amorphic Robot Works, a San Francisco-based group of artists, engineers and technicians working together to create robotic performances and installations. He describes his vision as ARW's Artistic Director: "The work is an ongoing endeavor to uncover the primacy of movement and sound. Each machine is inspired or influenced both by modern society and what I physically experience and sense. The whole of this input informs my ideas and work."
