Alluring Androids and Robots in Film, Photography and Art: A lecture by Julie Wosk


Thursday, December 5, 2013
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Virtual women also raise provocative new questions, as Julie Wosk, Professor of Art History, English and Studio Painting at SUNY Maritime, will discuss. Filmmakers, photographers, and artists have long been fascinated by the idea of artificial women that seem alive. The Stepford Wives and Lara Croft, products of the imagination, are now becoming realized in the latest in female Japanese robots, which look so real they can easily fool the eye. This illustrated lecture showcases colorful images of female robots, androids, talking dolls, mannequins, and other artificial women. Ranging from early automatons to lifelike female heroines in today’s video games, these images tell a startling tale of changing attitudes toward science and toward women themselves.
