Agent X, ‘Alfrarvis City’, 2017, Addicted Art Gallery

Good To Know: Artwork is shipped directly from the artist.

Series: 2017 Fall Collection Agent X's new series deals with questions about dystopia. Are we in the middle of a cataclysmic decline in society? Is it too late to turn things around so we're living in a utopia? Agent X has a few words about the direction his new series has taken... “Planet Earth has gone to shit! Between Trump, misogyny, racism, war, genocide, etc. I had to get off the planet and so did my art. The way I did this was by going back to the movies that inspired me as a kid, and now as an adult - films like Interstellar, Blade Runner, Star Wars and other Sci-Fi cinema.”

Signature: Hand signed and numbered

Arty-Fact: 'Alfrarvis City' is inspired by dystopian cinema.
Technological utopianism is an ideology based on the premise that advances in science and technology should bring about a utopia. A techno-utopia is a hypothetical ideal society in which laws, government and social conditions are operating for the benefit of all citizens.

'Alfrarvis City' features a three-eyed head that is, in reality, two heads overlooking the city. Robotic schematics are within the face of the artwork. Below is a robotic database and power-plant. When turned upside down, the artwork reveals another robotic head with the dark city in the background.
