"Fellow artist Laura Kikauka and I each built an electro-mechanical sex machine (hers, female; mine, male) without consulting each other on the particulars, apart from the dimensions of the engaging organs. We then brought these two machines together for a public performance. The male machine, the first and last anthropomorphic robot I've ever built, responds to the magnetic fields generated by the female organ, thereby increasing its rate of breathing and moving its limbs, simultaneously charging a capacitor to strobing "orgasm". The female machine, on the other hand, is a diverse assemblage including a boiling kettle, a squirting oil pump, a twitching sewing machine treadle, and huge solenoid on a fur-covered board -- all hanging from an old bedspring and energized by an electronic power sequencer."[1]-Norman White
