The focus of the project is to look at the robotic revolution that is said to be taking place right now, with robots and artificial intelligence becoming more common sights in everyday life.
I am interested in addressing the reoccurring worry about the impact of robots on the automation of jobs in the next twenty, thirty years as well as what they mean for humans in general. Stephen Hawking recently said that AI will be ‘either best or worst thing’ for humanity. Whether the technology has the potential to lead to mass poverty or if it will only bring benefits, appears to be a big unknown.
I have created a series of images of people being portrayed as robots, in order to explore those anxieties
associated with the near future alongside machines.
