For more than 40 years robots have been the workhorses for manufacturing giants, pre-programmed machines capable of performing one repeated task in a highly-controlled environment. QUT in partnership with UAP and the IMCRC are creating an industry first: a new wave of agile, adaptable robots that can see what they’re working on and make decisions as required. Unlike its blind cousins, this one is being trained at our Brisbane workshop, to create large-scale, bespoke art pieces, previously impossible to produce economically in Australia.
UAP recently hosted a press viewing for Making Marvels, the highly-anticipated second season of Big Art. Produced by Wildbear Entertainment and Screen Queensland, Making Marvels follows members of the UAP team on a global art adventure, working with artists, architects, and designers, from concept and design through to fabrication and installation, to deliver some truly breathtaking art projects.
Viewers in Australia and around the world will be captivated as the series extends and builds on the vision of the first Big Art series.

Announced by The Gateways Public Art Commission, New York-based design studio LOT-EK has been selected as the winning concept for a bold new light installation on the Gold Coast in Australia. The work, titled ‘HI-LIGHTS’ will feature nearly 100 modified highway light poles to form the iconic city’s name at the northern installation and the letters GC at the southern site.
