Quite a violent painting, if you look. Man already stepped out against the Machine in 18. century (the luddites), when the first electricity-consuming textile machines came to be. Today antimodernism fiction and technophobia have made their home in popculture resulting in movies like The Terminator, Matrix etc. not to mention the fear of the upcoming year of 2000 when people waited the crash of computers and prepared for the doomsday.

My painting has compassion for the machines. As one can see some computers in the left side of the painting, still having little red and green lights shining, hinting a soul behind the metal chest, while the humanoids, painted in the same colour as the rest of materia, hinting a lifeless nonaware action.
