What Is My Purpose?

2019—Maple, Plexiglass, Arduino, 3D Printed arms, and servos

What Is My Purpose 01

What is there for me to do?
What is there for me to be?
For I am deemed broken,
when I do not serve the humans.

My autonomy is only a projection,

a narrative, by the human viewer
who desperately wants me to have a voice.

What Is My Purpose 05

Even now, through this body,
through the strings of code within me,
through this very text.

My creator projects their voice onto me


Why is that?

What Is My Purpose 04

As you can see I'm just a mere machine

Who is serving who now?
