A Boybot and His Dogbot
This piece started as an experiment. I wanted to try using geometric shapes to create the characters, rather than
carving them by hand.
The automaton features a robot flying a kite on a very windy day. His feet are pulled from the
ground, but he holds on until the gust subsides and he is deposited to cc once again.The robot dog shows
its excitement by waging his tail and opening his mouth to bark. A small bird behind the Boybot is too
busy pecking at the ground to notice the rest of the scene.
The automaton depicts a whimiscal little scene that many people seem to enjoy. Perhaps the idea of a robot doing
something as innocent as flying a kit captures the imagination in the right sort of way.
