Despite our finite nature, we as people leave lasting impressions through our encounters and our actions. We are tethered to our legacy; we can be glistening and bright or rusted and decrepit. Despite this all though, the soul shines through anything. The piece, ‘Bygone”, displays that through rust, age, wear and tear the robot’s inner presence persists. It lights up, despite the grime it’s built up; the bygone era does not define what the robot has to offer or despite it’s earthly tethers. It’s foundations leave a lasting home for it’s living legacy: it’s soul.
