brain growth according to Paik

“Paik wanted to build an anthropomorphic robot, because he was fascinated by the scientists’ discovery that the human brain had begun to grow after man stopped walking on all fours and had to figure out what to do with his two ‘free’ hands.”

– Wulf Herzogenrath, Hayward Gallery 1988 exhibition catalogue “Nam June Paik Video Works 1963-88”
