Artist Statement:

Created as an entry in the May The 4th Be With You exhibit at The Bricks in Ybor last year. Star Wars laden references in the image relate to our use of technology and artificial intelligence.  What will the robots, drones and evolution of AI look like in the future as our lives are increasingly becoming interwoven with technology, will it resemble the IG-88 assassin droid pictured here from the Star Wars Universe? Will it take on another form entirely? Or does the real problem lie with the programmers, producers of and demands for such a spiraling technological arms race which only serves to widen the gap between the haves and have-nots?

Bad Robot IG-88
