USR&MM Stoya Pleasurebot

Here’s our latest piece that is currently on ebay

If you’ve ever read any Isaac Asimov books (and if you haven’t then you’re missing out) then you’re probably aware that many of his books concern robots which were created by his fictional company ‘USR&MM’ (which stands for U.S Robots & Mechanical Men).

Now I’m sure that Asimov didn’t exactly have ‘pleasurable’ purposes in mind when he developed his ideas on robots but you know that if we had these kind of things in the real world it would only be a matter of time (probably just minutes) before somebody had the bright idea of fitting them out for the oldest profession.

Anyway, here we have the promotional posters for the cream of the robotic crop. The state of the art, Android powered, ‘Stoya’ model Pleasurebot. In shops now…

She’s A3 in size and comes from an edition of 5 which are all different and hand-finished. She has been completed using the magic of screen printing, spraypaint and stencils. Signed on reverse.

Cheers

USR&MM ‘Stoya’ Pleasurebot

If you’ve ever read any Isaac Asimov books (and if you haven’t then you’re missing out) then you’re probably aware that many of his books concern robots which were created by his fictional company ‘USR&MM’ (which stands for U.S Robots & Mechanical Men).

Anyway, here we have a somewhat phallic looking promotional poster of sorts for the cream of the robotic crop. The state of the art, Android powered, ‘Stoya’ model Pleasurebot.  Coming soon…

She’s about 3.5m tall and 3.5m wide and is currently in place on a side street parallel to Water Lane in Camden (but the other side of the train tracks). I thought she was finished just as the rain started then finally remembered to install her cybernetic glowing LED eye just to give it that final futuristic touch. Hopefully it’ll be working for the next few weeks and we’ll be able to get a night shot before it runs out. Many thanks to The Real Art of Street Art  for sorting the space for us!

Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It’s the transition that’s troublesome. (Isaac Asimov)

Isaac Asimov slate

Isaac Asimov has got to be one of my favourite authors ever. A proper icon. In today’s world of vapid and empty sounding celebrities who are famous for nothing more than looking good here we have a true celebrity. Famous for being outstanding in his chosen field. Not only was he terrifyingly prolific – his bibliography is over 500 works long (and that doesn’t include individual short stories) – but he was far ahead of his time when it came to imagining the future and humanity’s part in it.

His ‘Foundation‘ and ‘Robot’ series are some of the finest science-fiction works available and I would urge you to get them read. Countless of his stories have been made into films and many of his ideas have influenced a wide range of creators. In honour of his work and the inspirational stories he imagined we thought we’d immortalise him on slate. Combining his distinctive glasses with an exposed robot eye gave us the germ of an idea and from there we were away. I reckon that once this one has been framed suitably it will look spot on. Hopefully we’ll have a few more in this series once I can actually work out who else is worth commemorating…

Cheers
