“Take a bunch of plushies. Take off their plush. Connect their cables to each other. Now listen to what they say about art.” 

Machine and human power are cross-connected to result in a bizarre discourse on art. Manipulated plush toys – dancing and singing ones – are connected to Twitter’s search engine. Whenever an emerging tweet contains the word “art”, one of the plush robots translates the tweet into speech and tells it to the others.
