The Midas Touch: Hajime Sorayama Teams with Case Studyo on Gold Plated Middle Finger
At the Juxtapoz offices, we are huge fans of Japanese artist Hajime Sorayama because of his famous robot women works and Star Wars concept art legacy. Sorayama, in conjunction with his Nanzuka Gallery, has teamed with Case Studyo on a limited edition, gold plated middle finger, titled The Midas Touch. Sound familiar?
The Midas Touch not only explores the relationship between artist and audience but delves into the intimate and complicated relationship of creator and creation, as well. The sculpture’s obscene gesture constitutes a small revolt and playfully touches on the fear of an inevitable clash between man and machine. Sorayama’s sexy robot seems to have turned against its creator and reminds us all that technology can be tantalizingly beautiful but also ruthlessly cold... Such a cold finger Beckoning you to enter its web of sin But don’t go in..."
