Surveillance cameras disguised as robot sculptures by Björn Schülke

Media Artist Björn Schülke put a tiny twist into this robotic sculptures. They move and look mostly harmless, but they are surveying the visitors. The videopicture can not only be seen on the monitors in the heart of the robots, but are also taped and archived. Schülke talks of "autonomous observing systems" on his webpage. The robots are somehow reacting to the "warmblooded" spectators. Although they look interesting, the sculptures have no other use than than "permanent observation". Now say what?
