Mr Partybot 1977family icon

Disco was in, flares were in, your mum and dad probably had a Kingswood and robots had just become popular.

Inspired by science fiction at the time, Party-bots began to make appearances at venues and discos around the world. Generally, simply a remote-controlled trolley with plastic cladding, these Party-bots were hugely popular and presented a vision of the future where we could be served and entertained by robots.

Originally beginning his life in the 1970s as a promo vehicle for a South Australian bank, Mr Party-bot has been reborn from obscurity to roam around spreading a party wherever he goes.

This work will appear throughout the day alongside other roaming pieces by artists Cake Industries.
