Acerca de


Julie Wosk's exciting new book introduces the world of artificial women who seem alive, a subject that has long fascinated filmmakers, artists, photographers, television writers, video game designers, and robotics engineers. These synthetic creatures have a surprising appeal-- and range from early automatons to Lara Croft and the Stepford Wives to today's female robots that look so real they can easily fool the eye. Based on a ground-breaking New York museum exhibit curated by the author, this book sparkles with illustrations--many in color-- of facsimile females from past to present. These images often reveal men's fantasies and our changing views of science, technology, and women themselves. In her introductory essay and detailed captions, Wosk connects these synthetic creatures to key cultural themes and raises provocative questions. Do these simulated women seem delightful, scary, alluring, alien? Are they admirable technological wonders or do they challenge our humanity in disturbing ways?
