Martha Roslers Semiotics of the Kitchen (1975) "replaces the domesticated meaning of kitchen tools with a lexicon of rage and frustration." The video was made 27 years before the introduction of the first mass-market domestic robot - the i-robot Roomba. The Roomba is produced by America’s biggest manufacturer of military robots.
