they are the human face
a benevolent reminder
of our techno-human nature
they are everywhere
they are our buddies
they are us
I see buddies as hybrid creatures, half industrial, half totemic. They are a metaphor for the best we have in us: the ingenuity of human-the-inventor and the imagination of human-the-storyteller.
In the spirit of the Easter Island statues, giant buddies tower over the landscape, like here at the Artificial Mythology exhibition in the Donjon de Vez (France) in 2012.
