The Technological Awakening

A three-channel video installation depicting the birth of cyborgs and robots in Science Fiction cinema.

Interactive Screens and Cinematic Objects

The Technological Awakening appropriates imagery of robot and cyborg 'awakenings' (that moment when Frankenstein comes to life) collected from science fiction cinema to encourage contemplation of how technology, in providing means for control, efficiency, freedom, and agency, ultimately shapes society.

I'm reading books on cybogs in Hollywood cinema and watching films such as Robocop, Metropolis, Westworld and Terminator.
