Biography

Robb Godshaw is an artist and researcher based in San Francisco. His work uses robotics, electronics, and rapid prototyping to explore the complexity of human-machine interactions. His work walks a fine line between absurd and unsurprising as a way to comment on American cultures of technology. Robb has received a BFA in Art degree from Carnegie Mellon University where he focused on implementing mechatronic sculpture techniques into his artwork. His recent social-practice project, Strange Lenses, was recently awarded a large grant for semi-permanent exhibition on Market Street in San Francisco, where the public will have a chance to interact with the piece outside of gallery environment. In parallel with his art practice Robb has a practice of freelance technical engineering and fabrication of electrical, mechanical, and optical systems for institutions such as the Exploratorium Museum. His work has been featured in Popular Science, Core77, NPR, Gizmodo, and PBS.
