"Atomizing Randall the Robot Rocking Horse"

about

Jim Casey Sculptures & DIGITAL IMAGERY

"Life has no meaning. Each of us has meaning and we bring it to life. It is a waste to be asking the question when you are the answer."~ Joseph Campbell.


Robots are vehicles of expression. They generate an emotional response that causes us to question our reality, which is the most important aspect of our existence. Used as an art form, robots create a language that addresses the high-tech, yet fading structure of our society. It is also a celebration of the temporary nature of life. A fascination with robots stirs an interest in the organic qualities of machines and how that may translate to living things. The interrelation of the mechanical qualities of carbon based organisms and our attempts to replicate them create a flux between the living and our reflections of them.


This imagery can also serve as a commentary about the condition of man.
