In the artist’s own words: "This photo was taken inside the Phaeno Science Center by architect Zaha Hadid. It is an interactive science center geared towards a younger audience in which patrons can have a hands on experience with technology and information. In this image, a little girl began to interact with a robot in this exhibit, which actually approached her and began speaking with her. Almost in a trance, the little girl pulled up a stool, which was so interesting to me that I felt compelled to capture it."
