Artobots Guggenheim is an alternative audio tour created for John Chamberlain's Choices Exhibition at New York's Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. The audio tour transports people to a dystopian alternate reality where the Decepticons (Transformer bad guys) have triumphed over their arch enemies the Autobots (good guys) and have artfully put their scorched wreckage on display as both trophies and reminders to the - now enslaved - human populous of their tragic inferiority. It's also a comedy.

The tour used the latest in immersive binaural 3D sound technology, allowing the listeners to viscerally feel their brains being scanned, drones flying overhead and robot guards walking behind them. The tour included over 30 separate stories, detailing every magnificent and generally ridiculous moment during the Autobots final stand, otherwise known as 'The Battle for the Hudson.'
