Two Devices
HD | 1.78 | color | stereo | 10:00" | 2014

Two Devices narrates the imminent mechanization of natural forms, through the fable of a donkey who has second thoughts about committing an act of violence, and a robotic bird who struggles to fly away from its human handlers. Eventually, both devices fail. They delineate a circuit: while technology bends the machine toward the animal, war converts the animal into a machine.
