Sarah Petkus is an illustrator, graphic designer, and robotics artist from Las Vegas, Nevada. And this weekend she’s planning to unveil something big — a darkroom “stationary swarm” installation called Robot Army.


As of this writing, Robot Army consists of 30 soldiers which can be controlled, en masse, via a gestural interface based on Kinect.
