Interview with Hiroshi Ishiguro, Momoyo Torimitsu, Chris Henschke.
The series “Kiss of Art” is about a romance between art and technology, it is a tale of a human in love with a machine. Each episode attempts to capture the fleeting moment of fascination and genius present in the process of artistic exchange. The contemporary muse breaks free of conventions, her kiss of art does not discern between robot engineers, conceptual animators or graphic designers. Such ephemeral instances of warmth can now be communicated between a machine and a human by means of intuitive interfaces. The impulse of our touch can incite a hybrid plant to sing in response and the digital video technology admits us entry into the world of exciting and dangerous new ecologies. Kiss of Art is a series of contemporary art inspiration and creative brilliance.

Hiroshi IshiguroProfessor Hiroshi Ishiguro is a director of the Intelligent Robotics Laboratory at Osaka University, Japan. A notable development of the laboratory is the actroid, a humanoid robot with lifelike appearance and visible behaviour such as facial movements. Ishiguro has made an android that resembles himself. Ishiguro’s recent creations look like normal people. Robots, according to Ishiguro are poised to move from factories into daily life. The hope is that robots will one day help people with a multitude of tasks.
Momoyo TorimitsuMomoyo Torimitsu (born Tokyo 1967), based in New York's, playfully critiques contemporary Japanese culture through works in sculpture, installation and video. “Miyata Jiro” is a reflection of Torimitsu’s sharp and critical understanding of the culture created by Japan’s rapid economic rise as a superpower. Simultaneously embodying and subverting the roles of worker and robot, she taps into society’s corporate fears and anxieties about work–life balance and the respect accorded to each. Torimitsu has performed and exhibited widely.
Chris HenschkeChris Henschke is a Melbourne-based artist who has been working with digital media for the past fifteen years.
