    In the News: Verdant Art-Tech Contraption Descends Upon France

    This spring, a War of the Worlds-scale tripod carrying verdant laboratories on suspended platforms showed up in Nantes in western France. It was just the latest massive art-tech project from street theater company La Machine, which has been startling Europeans with giant robots for more than a decade. Before the “flying greenhouse,” there was the 50-foot-tall spider on the side of a building in Liverpool. And, of course, there was the 50-ton wooden elephant that roamed the streets of Nantes in 2005.
