The Lonely Robot

  1. A music video celebrating the android, the lonely robot, forever working and never sleeping. Robots can be so perfect that I often wish I was one, they never let anyone down, they never have selfish thoughts, and they are often misunderstood in popular culture.

    Robots can provide an alternative lens through which to look at the world, a different way of seeing, through Kino Pravada.
