New Machine Projects: Volunteers and Producers Wanted 

Well, after a year and a half of moving from San Francisco to Petaluma and a few months of setting everything up again, SRL is finally back in the robot making business. We're working on a couple new machine projects and want to be ready to show them off to the public.

Please contact Mark Pauline at markp [at] srl [dot] org if you can offer us an opportunity for a live SRL performance. We offer public events of almost any scale, from a few machines to shows with over 40 tons of robots! In keeping with the SRL tradition over the past 30 years, our performances give new meaning to the word extreme. So, please, if you're looking for SRL "lite" type events, look elsewhere.

Renegade Art & Democracy 

What do Andrew Stanton (writer director of Wall-e), Lynn Hershman (acclaimed filmmaker/video artist), Mickey Hart (Grateful Dead), Anne Lamott (author/activist), Mark Pauline (SRL), and Jane Metcalfe (co-founder WIRED) have in common?

They (and 40+ other artists and activists) support the Renegade Liberal (as labeled by the National Journal) and champion of the public option in health care reform, Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey and think so should you.

Each is participating and contributing to an event and art auction to raise funds for the congresswoman not to be missed.
