Robots in the sky with diamonds
This was a series of photographs that I wanted to take last year, but just didn't get the chance in the run up to Christmas. 2010's photos would have had red and powder blue clouds, but 2011 brought white ones instead.
When I was designing these robots in Göteborg 2010, we had decided on a mechanical theme for LOD's Christmas exhibition. Robots were the first thing to pop into my head. I liked the concept of these little mechanical characters hanging in the air, with sparkling lights glittering and illuminating them like diamonds - and so the concept was born. Robots in the sky with diamonds. Best viewed with a cloud or two hanging in the background, for as we know, cloudy skies are a common sight on the West Coast.
