Cyberpunk Art early cyborg Robot with human face wallpaper – Some Friends Are Electric, by HIAB-X

Some Friends Are Electric - Photography by HIAB-X

Part of a series of images from the liquid metal, carb0-plastic, hydrogel and permacrete core of visual creators on the Internet.  Images that stir my senses and evoke plots and concepts for what I’d like to see (or fear) in the future.

I like this image for several reasons. It feels like it could be a scene from a movie, or there should be a wider story attached to the image: was it taken on Earth?  Or is it a slice of reality from some far flung, cold and potentially hostile location where a human face, no matter how synthetic, is a valuable friend in the fight against insanity?  Finally, the photo was taken by my best friend and soul-brother, Matthias – who also created the robot from scavenged electronics, mannequins and toy parts.  He’s been doing this since I met him in 1994. I hope you like his work.
