At PICA we recognise that we are situated within the unceded lands of the Whadjuk people of the Noongar Nation. We pay our respects and offer our gratitude to Elders past and present, and to those emerging leaders in the community. We acknowledge all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and the importance of their care and continued connection to culture, community and Country.

Always was, always will be.

Our foyer is open today 10am–5pm . Our exhibitions are always free.

StickMan / miniStickMan

StickMan / miniStickMan
StickMan / miniStickMan is an interactive installation created by HyperPrometheus artist Stelarc. It uses an algorithm to operate a full-body robotic exoskeleton (‘StickMan’).
Insert your own looping choreography by moving the limbs of the miniature robot (‘miniStickMan’) and pressing the play button, to see ‘StickMan’ come to life.
The physicality of the performance is flattened and modulated by the projected shadow of ‘StickMan’ on the wall, and with live video feedback.
Stelarc will be attached to ‘StickMan’ for a five hour durational performance on Saturday 20 October, as well as from 7-8pm on Friday 19 October during the HyperPrometheus exhibition opening.
