This short chapter at the beginning of the book introduces the theme of Machine Art by describing four artworks that pinpoint the encounter of humans with technical systems. The works by the artists Maurizio Bolognini, Daria Martín, Herwig Weiser, and David Rokeby, present different degrees of strangeness and intimacy, interaction, control and machine autonomy, circumscribing some of the key aspects of human–machine relations.

Keywords:   art, technology, machine, interaction, machine autonomy
