The next time I hear someone say they're headed to the bathroom to "do some thinking", I might be inclined to believe them. Never one to dilly-dally in the lavatory, this morning a strange thing happened: I was doing some "thinking" of my own and noticed, for the first time, just how much the bathroom cabinet reminds me of the giant metal-eating robot that menaced Manhattan in an old episode of The Amazing Spider-Man.
And, bam! This week's Illustration Friday theme just happens to be the word robot.
So this evening I took a number of shots of household objects – trying to keep in mind a similar perspective – and pieced together this photo-collage, using the cabinet as a base and then building from there. The feet/wheels are from our eco-friendly, push-powered lawnmower. One arm is a tripod; the other a hose from a hand-me-down vacuum cleaner. The antennae are made up from our reading lamp, and – aaaugh!!! It's taking the TV! Right in the middle of hockey playoffs!
