Despite having been caught “graffittiing” and arrested for criminal trespassing during their first attempt, two visiting artists triumphed and successfully installed a large wooden sculpture on a rooftop in the East Williamsburg section of Brooklyn. According to the New York Times, “The two men, who make art under the names of Jimmy Bumble and Leonard White, traveled to the United States from London as part an art collective called Giant Robots that constructs walking, talking robots made almost entirely from found objects.” I regret to report this robot neither walks nor talks.
