THE BIRTH OF BREAKDOWN CLOWN
The Birth of Breakdown Clown, an innovative project that integrates sculpture with robotics and artificial intelligence. Breakdown Clown is an imaginary androgynous figure that plays a powerful role in an imagined society similar to that of a priest, shaman or therapist. The sculpture explores the human condition not only in relation to moral conflicts facing the world today, but also reflects on issues of the individual voice against the powers of law and governance. Through its use of robotics, the project examines the digital age, reflecting upon how quickly we have become reliant on digital technology and how this has evolved our behavior and perception of reality.
