Mr. Machine  - A Film for Eduardo Paolozzi

This video focuses on the robot Mr. Machine, which in a technologized world struggles against all things human and was modeled on a popular children’s toy of the same name from the 1960s. For Mr Machine. A Film for Eduardo Paolozzi, Leake and Griffiths—who during the 1970s participate in video works by Eduardo Paolozzi—use drawings by Paolozzi and Arthur Laskus that they develop into an animated film critical of technology.
