Connected Consciousness

MechanicalMan

The human body is a wondrous and complex machine. At birth it is innately wired for creative output and fueled by endless curiosity. Yet constant efforts are made in adulthood to reprogram our human machines. Creativity is neglected, and the more conventional, traditional roles take over for productivity's sake. Internal struggle ensues between the creative and the mechanical. As a result, artistic desires are often deleted or stored deep within the machine, making it difficult to rediscover the need to create freely. Here lies the connected consciousness of the struggling artist. MechanicalMan represents the rawest level of creative circuitry. In a world where the mechanical strangles even our most artistic expression, we remind creative-types in our midst that they are not alone.
