"Cyborg" from the "Get Your Ass to Mars"  series (2011) is reproduced from

Takeshi Murata

"Cyborg," from Takeshi Murata's 2011 Get Your Ass to Mars series, is reproduced from the new monograph by Salon 94, Ratio 3 and Kunsthall Stavanger - launching tonight at the Nitehawk Cinema in Williamsburg. "The relationship between alienation and desire is one I find especially relevant, both in the culture and personally," Murata says. "It's also tied closely to the advancement of technology. I think this may be why I was initially drawn to CG animation. It enters my work as subject and object. I want the renderings and prints to be pristine. Using the same tools as commercial ad agencies, I can employ similar tactics in my image-making. But the objects are reduced, often just to bare forms, placed in spaces that obfuscate their original purpose, then rendered in HD photorealistic light to accentuate their perfections. The response the images gives me feels like something close to desire and alienation simultaneously."
