TRACY'S PICK: 'Styrobots: Nothing Comes from Nothing'
It's a fascinating notion really: A two-story robot built (as art) with community-donated styrofoam. Even more perplexing is that when the "Nothing Comes from Nothing" is done, the "machine" is deconstructed and then recycled or sent to a landfill. The randomness of the materials, the impermanance of the object defies our idea of what art should be. Oregon artist Michael Salter's new robot, which will be sitting in a lotus position, almost scrapes the ceiling of GOCA 1420's warehouse of a gallery at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. The show opens at 5 p.m. Thursday with an artist's talk at 7 p.m. and it runs through March 22 at 1420 Austin Bluffs Parkway. It's free. Details: 255-3504, uccs.edu/~goca.
