The Host was recently presented in Poland where strange robots danced and twirled around the large warehouse space. They have an unnerving presence, which is inhanced by a 1950s sci-fi soundtrack and automated lighting, including moments of darkness. Marynowsky, the Australian artist behind it all, purposely gives the robots an abstracted human form, which adds to the menacing atmosphere and the paranoia created by the robots.
