Artist Michael Bell-Smith pokes at the binary between logic and humor, by exploring whether computers are funny, whether robots can tell jokes, and why it’s funny when humans act like machines.

Utilizing projection and sound, the performance will test the limits of the listicle – the web-born form that combines the editorial focus of an article with thesis-less serialization of a list – drawing on content from popular culture, the Internet, science, history, and the artist’s own invention.
