“Digital Bondage” encapsulates my feelings and ideas about technologies’ escalating ruthless takeover of our analog lives. (As much as I appreciate the conveniences of Tech I am a captive of it, struggling daily to learn and obey It’s ever morphing language of “upgrades” and quirks on my mac and iphone. We are slaves to the programmer.) The Inescapable bondage of a robotic future. Think Blade Runner and especially Blade Runner 2049 and Metropolis, 1927.

"Being a captive can also be erotic."

This bronze hand is twice the size of mine and has highly burnished hardware details where the leather laces through, including an extra long fingernail that I think of as hardware. The palm and joints are a little raw and patinated shadowy with wear.
