The Grid Kit is the world’s simplest, recyclable robot-building kit — it’s made up of just one sheet of 18” x 24” corrugated cardboard, with a 1” grid laser cut into its surface. It’s able to be cut, folded, propped, shaped, and motorized into anything you want: an alligator, a spaceship, a robot, a tank, a flower, etc. Seriously, there are twelve year old kids building airboats propelled by motorized fans, and one guy even built robotic hands for himself à la Edward. A $15 pledge gets you a standard kit — the rest is up to your imagination!

Name Carsten Höller: ExperienceLocation New Museum, New YorkInfo Exhibition runs through January 15, 2012
Over the past twenty years, Carsten Höller has created a world that is equal parts laboratory and test site, exploring such themes as childhood, love, the future, and doubt. Höller left his early career as a scientist in 1993 to devote himself exclusively to art making, and his work is often reminiscent of research experiments. His pieces are designed to explore the limits of human sensorial perception and logic through carefully controlled participatory experiences.
