About “Chicago Robotica Ryder Botball”:
“I find when creating my images, even though they have a whimsical feel to them, they do reflect conflict. All of our lives have struggles internally and externally. I believe that the Random Robots represent my personal pitfalls, conflicts, sucesses, all running around like little protons, neutrons, and electrons smashing together through ourselves, space, and time.”
