Liberation, by Hisashi Murata, is an installation using a robot that unleashes itself to die whenever it comes alive.

When the robot is plugged into a wall outlet, one can activate it using a remote controller. Then the robot moves away from the wall and plugs itself out. It is simple but conveys a powerful message.
