Disturbing art installation concept
Random idea for an art installation:
Build a robot who has been programmed to slowly destroy itself through mechanical means.
I was thinking it could be a mechanical arm calmly hitting its CPU with a hammer. The arm would be engineered to hit itself in such a way so that the performance would last days/weeks. Designed for its own inevitable destruction.
As a cheap shot, anthropomorphism (such as faces, humanoid voices) to taste.
