The Problem With Android originates from a single banner-style sketch – divided in to 5 smaller individual pieces with the design that each piece be purchased independently. The drawing style and subject matter of this work pull from the Linear Refractions Series but have the additional relation to the allegory from which they draw their name. The allegorical piece “the problem with android” was written during the time I began my original work on the first 3 Linear Refractions – though it held no direct reference to any piece at that time, the play on reality, delusion, and the fixation with electronics has long been an influence with all of these works. Here the ‘story’ finally finds a home with the divided set featured above. The photo depicts the sketches in their original order, numbered from right to left – each work hides on the back of its top right corner one of the sequential initials B1 through B5. 1
Below you can find and image of the work as it appeared before it was divided, as well as a link to the G-drive page with the coinciding “the problem with android” allegory. If you are lucky enough to have come across one of the ‘problems’ featured above, have you been able to determine its position? Perhaps more importantly, have you determine who else has hold of the other problems with android?
