In Brighton, outside a liquor store on N. Beacon St., this painting of a disarmed robot stands as either a threat to any robots who would take up arms against their human overlords or a call to arms by an underground robotic uprising guerilla group. Previously, I had posited that a squashed robot in a crosswalk on Atlantic Avenue might be a failed alien invasion, but I think this eliminates that possibility.
Notice the robot’s arms lying on the ground by its feet. Notice the thought bubble (hmmm) the artist included in the upper left. Should robots be thinking about what humans are doing to them, or should they be thinking about what humans HAVE ALREADY DONE and prepare to wage a battle against us?
Meanwhile, at the intersection of Evans Way and Louis Prang St. (just East of the Museum of Fine Arts) I came across another robot squashed in the crosswalk!
This one was of the same style as the one I found on Atlantic Ave., but yellow. I have no idea what that means, but you know it means something.
Don’t worry. I’ll keep you posted on new developments as I spot them. In the meantime, I’d love to hear what you think the various colors and styles might mean. And let me know if you see any robots…
