STATEMENTS: Medialia Gallery & The Ethyr Presents: Aim, Destroy, Transform: Play for Change Toy Show :: November 2017 :: NYC :: Rusty Robots by Selina Briggs of The Jelly Empire

I really love textures, especially weathered metals. The idea that time and environment can change the colour, and the feel of something, can be so beautiful. I wanted to apply that to my robots. Fresh out the factory they were probably shiny and clean and looked state of the art, but when neglected, forgotten about and left to the forces of nature and time, that shiny exterior decays and this transforms the robot itself into something else. It sounds sad but to me it's not. They evolved and became unique in appearance and continue to function amid all the stresses of time :)
