meditations of a french hipster.
Drawing from the pop culture phenomenon of Yelle and tektoniks, robot hands once again blurs the line between party and performance, artist and audience, art and fun. In their newest work, meditations of a french hipster, the dynamic duo seeks out to explore the societal boundaries set up when a performer takes the stage and how the french dance sensation, tektoniks, broke those pretensions. Employing heavily inspired tektonik vocabulary, robot hands twists and turns to the self-mashed mixes of Yelle and Santogold. Mainly, we just want to take your picture.
