Amelioration: The Video

Following on from yesterday, today I’m sharing Amelioration with you in the best way possible.Video and music here is by Ben Honebone. He’s really tapped into the calmness I feel when I see this Automata.

This artwork is everything I imagined when I conceived this series at the start of the year. The gearing, the engineering, the way she moves, are all things which please me. The way her head jerks in a puppet fashion is spot on. I love the way the red thread bobs up and down at the knee joint mimicking cotton thread loaded into in a sewing machine.

The philosophy and psychology you interpret looking at Amelioration are completely up to you. Freud would have a field day with all of this.
