Beggar Robot / Saso Sedlacek (SL)

Beggar Robot is a robot for the materially deprived and is constructed entirely from old computer hardware and a few spare parts that were obtained at no cost. As a low-tech, friendly device, it advocates three main ideas in contemporary activism. It is a surrogate agency created for a world in which the marginalized such as impoverished individuals and families, refugees and asylum seekers and those hidden from the public view, will never step onto the street to beg, except in the most dire of circumstances.
