One of the best things about being an artist is that I can use life experiences in my work. Great moments, utter pain, or random chance can all be turned into a Machina. The robot has become the obvious metaphor for this....Duh. I've used it to varying degrees. Whether or not it looks good really doesn't matter. Each one becomes special and in a way: intimate. Robotica Universi comes from "Robots Unite" and how one day we're all hooked into the Machine in some way.
