Bunny Bot Decided Not To Be Tragic, 2017
from the series: Il Volto
Bunny Bot decided not to be tragic. She directed this thought to the '60s-era light-up Santa perched atop her bedroom dresser. It was not Christmastime. In fact, it was the height of summer, and Bunny Bot felt as if she would slowly perish in the heat, as if she would evaporate into the cracked plaster ceiling of her bedroom. She leaned down and put her face in front of the box fan set at the foot of her bed. "Trrraaagic," she said, her voice bouncing off the blades in a warbling, robotic manner. She flicked on the television and watched a game show for a moment before catching sight of a dead bee on her pillowcase. She saw this as a key, a clue, to her happiness, and she attempted to decipher this mystery with a secret-decoder ring fresh from a box of cereal. She failed to discern any perceivable pattern. Instead, she arranged a series of small mirrors to play the husk of the bee in an endless reverberation.
