Photography: Color, Digital, Giclee on Paper.
We are slaves to our technology with our computers, email, our life.com, smartphones, S.S. numbers, digital identities, online aliases, navigation systems, social media, etc. Without it, we are nothing. With it, is all we are. The robot is a machined human. A human that has been so enveloped in its technology that it has mutated into it. It has become the object of its own obsession. In the photographs, the robots display a varying range of distinct human emotions. They convey human struggle. The robots are trapped inside a metallic shell, desperately trying to escape the confines of a digital existence. We (humans) are diving into a digital existence, until hopefully we’ll claw our way out back into an analogous existence. The robot metaphor functions in a literal sense, and a figurative sense. Literal, through us becoming our technology. Figurative, through humankind becoming sedated into one collective machine of mass produced thought.
