The mechanical ghosts of David Karave
Life and Love TV is pleased to present a video from multimedia and robotics artist David Karave. This artist has created a love over fear parody of the US homeland security department's color code threat alert system, in the form of an animatronic, pyrotechnic performance of a family of metal crash test dummies. The artist tells us that he borrowed his crash test dummies from the defense department, made moulds, and then poured metal robot body parts.

"These were military crash test dummies, now used in the form of a parody of wartime fear" says Karave, grinning, "it's funny you know, it's ironic the defense department has joined in the call for peace ... so these are robot crash ghost impressions... of dummies that were used in war exercises, now they've become a multimedia show of a sort, what you see as an audience member, is a theatre cinema show... of a family of robotic dummies watching color code threat alerts in a living room with a projected TV... the dummy robotic family is talking and they're afraid, they're watching TV, and war time news clips, and they're watching vague propaganda threats, and then they see some breaking news, an new threat alert escalation to the color orange, and they freak out. Their circuity just breaks and their heads set on fire... so you've got robots with their brains on fire, sort of like the way humans feel when they watch the government news."
