More photos of Yoichiro Kawaguchi's robot designs on display at Yushima Seid? temple in Tokyo:
These are gorgeous, but to my mind Kawaguchi owes Jim Woodring some money.
I see no robots, i see a lot of really cool pieces of plastic
I have to agree with M. And Vanessa's point may be true as well. I see differences in the designs, but the differences are marginal.
Awesome designs. Some of these remind me of Ernst Haeckel's Kunstformen der Natur (Artforms of nature).
Looks like steam punk meets Takashi Murakami.
I love the ones that look like a hybrid of a Goomba and a Metroid.
i thought robotics were supposed to be functional and then aesthetic/conceptual - then again, i'm not exactly linear either.
they'd probably do better as an exclusive line of vinyl toys.
@ Vanessa & Timothy: I went to see this today and I disagree-- I don't think they look much like Woodring's work at all. I think perhaps it's just that they both use bright primary colours and organic shapes, but there are definitely differences.
looks like willy wonka meets dr seuss
kinda cool tho. dont look anything like robots. and the robots dont look like they would do much.
still kinda interesting looking. im just not a big pokemon fan
these are fucking pokemon
