...I can't get excited by the myth of modernity, or some other brave new world cleaved from all of previous human experience...
But I want to understand in some small way how our world is built – not as an engineer but, as an artist. ... And so, in a backwards, contrary way I always stop in the middle of everything I do. I'm not just interrupted by contracts and part-time work to make ends meet. I'm trying to avoid my own habits of logic. I constantly bounce back and forth between drawing, writing, sculpture and robotics.
I made the Solar Parasite and torn drawings during 2014 as part of the humo, leche, y miel series.
I was trying to... imagine a space for robots,
but... more than that... I keep trying to imagine what a machine chorus would sound like?
what would sheet music would look like if it was a code to replicate sound? The drawings were shown along with my production sketches, sketchbook and maquettes in the Robotis Personae exhibit at the Eastern Bloc in Montréal January 2015.
