EASTN-DC Cardiff’s first Artists in Residence will arrive in October from Germany. Carolin Liebl and Nikolas Schmid-Pfähler are a team of two artists working with robotics and kinetic sculptures since 2012. Their work is playful yet technologically ambitious and well crafted. I met them in 2018 as fellow artists in And the Things We Do group show in Azkuna Zentroa, Bilbao Spain where they exhibited their intriguing flexible robots Vincent and Emily.
