Artist’s statement

Parts from broken computers were pulled apart and rearranged to create miniature robots who draw for their artist.

With the increasing utilisation of technology in the art world, has the integrity of the artist’s manual skill been compromised? Has the integrity of art itself been compromised?

Whose work is this? Can the artist own a work they did not draw?

Perhaps another question: Can the artist draw, at all?
