Inspired by the Sci-Fi novel 'I-Robot' (Issac Asimov 1950) this image was conceived as an exploration of the concept of artificial intelligence and the philosophic question: Can robots develop a conscience? The character in the image is female, she has some decorative softness in a string of pearls and a white feather, but her voice is cold, digitised and harsh, think of her as Alexa's maleficent sister. Maybe she talks like the computer Hal in Stanley Kubrick's Film 2001 A Space Oddessy. A crustacean claw caresses her earlobe to let you know she is not human. Her luminous electric eye watches you. She collects data. She is watching.
