Ruairi Paxman

I imagined a world without humans; where joy, freedom and fertility are held instead within toy-like objects and machines. I find this idea funny and strangely romantic as these creations will continue expressing themselves day after day, year after year, even though they are mere objects, because they are designed to relay a message or a warning of some sort. They could keep running long after real humanity, real life, has become little more than dust, because emotion and the eternal madness of the human condition are held captive within them. This body of work is a collection of symbolism that represents a bizzare eulogy for our world of living things.
