The Uncanny Valley

Based on an A.I. / robotics term, the uncanny valley is the moment in synthetic intelligence where something becomes so lifelike that we begin to empathize with it but still not lifelike enough to completely relate—in this valley we are simultaneously attracted and repelled.  this body of ceramic-based sculptures merges synthetic objects, forms, and textures with the corporeal feel of clay to create my own investigation of the uncanny valley.
