Once released, the artistic nature of techies can't be stopped -- literally. Thursday night Pittsburgh Technology Council's Art + Technology Initiative opened its Art + Tech Exhibition and the BurgBot Project in the 15 Minutes Gallery at 2000 Technology Drive, with lots of spinning, talking, moving pieces among conventional paintings, sculpture and photography. Greeting nearly 200 guests outside was a 12-foot-tall kinetic sculpture, "Power Flower," by Art Energy Designs. Laura Tabakman was honored with the Best in Show award for "Flora." Other honorees were Art + Technology Award: Sandy Kessler Kaminski; Best Regionally Themed Work: William Pfahl; Best Robot: Keary Rosen; and Best Use of Traditional Media: Joyce Werwie Perry. The council, with the help of the James Gallery, presented this one-of-a-kind exhibition, which will run until the end of August. The BurgBots will run until July 17.
