These posed objects, found in my friend Marc’s place in Brooklyn, appear to be an Imperial Walker having sex with an F-16. These are artifacts of dissonant eras of technology, one from our world, one from a mythological world. Their coupling is unexpected, and yet they actually have so many things in common — both are human/machine cyborg weapons involving a machine exoskeleton surrounding a human operator. More essentially, both are of the Lego persuasion and plastic with interchangeable parts. Therefore both are constructed changelings whose parts could be interchanged to create newly mutated forms.
Consider that this may be a propitious time to be open to unusual couplings.
