The Creators Project website has this piece on Hyun Ju Kim's Tweetbot, a lonely six legged robot spider that "senses your presence and speaks to you, quoting sad, lonely passages from Kim's own journal."

The text is projected within the installation, and also Tweeted to TweetBot's Twitter account.

This sad little android's existence says something profound about isolation in the age of "optimized" communication. In light of all the convenience and speed of our modern methods of communication, is something lost along the way?
