Title: Reinforced Reinforcer
Description: Humanity's abusiveness was my main thought when bringing this piece to life. The determination of everything humanity makes, including people, and the loyalty was signified through the usage of an individual robot which I deemed a common symbol of humanity's servant. I believe that we go through cycles of materials that we hold to fit our needs and even though all we do is use and take in, we betray it all by throwing it away without another thought. I guess the robot is a personification for the forced loyalty that materials have to fit our needs and the man-made blaster shows the betrayal when we toss things to oblivion.
