Paul Granjon is a French artist based in Cardiff. He makes robots and various machines for performances, videos and installations. He is interested in the co-evolution of human and machine, a theme that led him to produce, among other things a hairy kicking robot, an Automated Forest, a set of Robotic Ears and Tail, and a Cybernetic Parrot Sausage. He was part of the team of artists representing Wales at the Venice Biennale 2005, where he exhibited the Robotarium installation featuring two autonomous mobile Sexed Robots.

In December 2007 Paul Granjon completed a 3-year NESTA Fellowship with the publication of a book / DVD that presents a comprehensive selection of work developed since 1996. More details can be found at
