"As Metzger sat during a series of 20-minute sessions, trying not to think, readings were taken every two minutes of the electrical activity in his brain. The resulting electroencephalograms were used to create the instructions for a robot to work on the stone at a factory in Oxfordshire. The end product looks like a non-functioning washing machine. Perhaps this is a blueprint for art. In the future, machines will do the work, while artists stare"
