Photographer Thomas Jackson has a comical series of photographs featuring a lone robot. The photos, at first, capture mundane chores such as doing the laundry or mowing the lawn but take a turn for the mysterious. Jackson draws inspiration from science fiction and literature to give the robot's story a “darkly humorous narrative.” The series is meant to examine the uneasy relationship we have with Mother Nature. While beautiful and fascinating, nature can still elicit fear and confusion. The robot represents our complicated relationship with the natural world and our failed attempts to try and tame the surrounding environment.
