Description:


    As man has toyed with science, science will play in man’s image. A man-made robot observes and contemplates a human skull. Instinctively, it begins to play one of his creator’s childhood games: hopscotch. With its creator’s imperfections imbedded within his design, structure, and reasoning capabilities, the robot is resigned to follow the path of his creator.
