I was tired of not having time to work on projects, my job was all consuming and I was pissed. One morning as I entered the labs "work" reached out to me in a different way, a new project and a whole new world opened up. The everyday scenes took on new life. The mannequins are just a shell void of a soul but have a sweetness to them that some find charming, others find disturbing, but they do evoke an emotion from us.
The uncanny valley is a common unsettling feeling people experience when androids (humanoid robots) and audio/visual simulations closely resemble humans in many respects but are not quite convincingly realistic.
