I’ve always been intrigued by the idea of Androids (human-like robots, not the phone). The techonology behind them would definitely be something I would like to study. Whether I think they’ll appear tomorrow and take over the world… well read my thoughts here. Anyway I wanted to make a cyborg piece in Photoshop that was non-threatening, colorful and somewhat comical. I took the picture of an underwear model (who will remain nameless) and visually removed chunks from her, then added machine parts taken from across the web. Instead of functioning on the standard greasy oil, I wanted bright liquid pumping through my android’s “veins.” Of course then what would happen if you cut one (or four). Below is my piece.
