Fear of the Alien

I’ve spent most of the afternoon ripping up a newspaper into suitable size pieces for Amelioration which is part of my Automata series.

Each automaton will be covered in text but I don’t want any of the text to speak to me or influence me in any way. I want the language to be something alien to me, something to add to the unease, something other.

Fear of the unknown and the unfamiliar are the greatest fears of all. They breed an unnecessary discomfort and mistrust in others. These Automata are not designed to be soft or gentle in their attitude. They are here to challenge and question.

Of course if you speak Hindi then none of this that you see here is difficult. Ooh look! I just found my horoscopes…
