Believe it or not, it can be quite difficult to make a living as an artist. PoBot is at once a self-portrait, and a solution to this problem. The sculpture will not function without a deposit of 25¢. This buys the viewer several seconds of entertainment and pays for several seconds of studio rent for the artist.
