Here is another of my accidental discoveries. What I like about this series is all the wonderful contrasts it presents: the softness of the girl against all the hard edges of the machinery, the girl’s whimsically oversized yet grungy clothing, and the girl herself, who is not simply a traditional tomboy—she has a girly side too, hinted at by her fingernail polish. This is a well-conceived campaign that emphasizes both Sturchio’s photographic skill and her fashion designs.

Girls and Robots (and Robot Girls)
From the Wired article Let Your Children Play with Robots:
“Robots can help children become smarter and happier. Javier Movellan, who has spent the better part of the last three decades playing with kids and robots, is sure of it.
Movellan, an associate professor affiliated with UC San Diego’s Machine Perception Laboratory, is a psychologist and a robotics researcher. He studies children’s interactions with robots for two reasons: to better understand childhood development and to build better robots. He has found that emotion and interactivity are more important to kids than humanoid appearance or abstract intelligence.”
