A Connected Sculpture
BBot itself is a unique piece of art, its spikey form is based on the algorithmic shapes created by data crystallisations within the virtual space.
BBot provides automated long-term Internet navigation and is aimed at art galleries, museums, festivals and private collectors, to name a few.
The BBot structure incorporates a video-projection system and mini-computer installed with dedicated software and internet connectivity.
BBot allows artists and curators a new way to express their vision. The art of "surfing the web", typically an intimate and individual activity, becomes a shared, collective experience, with a clearly delineated pathway for the user to enjoy.
Curated Internet art collections
The selection of content is curated by an international network of artists and curators with exhibitions managed via the online platform.
Content is developed in the form of "editorialised, browser-based art" with its own rhythms and sequences. Artists and curators guide us through their personal selection of artistic websites.
Visit our Collections, which are available for purchase from our online shop, giving users access to new artworks that are ready to be played on BBot.
Online works come in many different formats, including animated gif, webGL, html and via vimeo.
Walls as artistic displays
BBot can exhibit digital art or online content on any surface: walls, screens, building facades, etc, turning an otherwise flat space into a display area for artwork
BBot operates independently for single projections, or along with other interconnected BBots for multi-screen installations.
This blend of the digital and physical worlds results in the delivery of a unique exhibition that will stimulate multisensory perception and create a unique event for the discerning audience.
Manage content remotely
Collections are managed and updated remotely, via the online managing platform.
A dedicated software has been especially developed for automatic browsing. The online platform has been designed to manage online content and distribute digital artworks or other online materials.
Customised advice, assistance & expertise

The size of your projection will vary according to the distance between the BBot and the surface being projected onto. For example, a good quality image of 2 metres in daylight means BBot must be installed 4 metres from the surface. A dark room makes the image two or three times bigger.
Plug & Play
The only thing BBot requires to get started is an Internet connection and a power supply – it’s that straightforward.
Real-time Internet browsing is done automatically as BBot "surfs" by itself, based on your selected playlist of thematic URL’s.
The audience is guided through the maze of the web and carried along on a unique journey of discovery, created by the vision of the collection editor and displayed for all to enjoy.
