Anton Tang

The human tendency to anthropomorphize never gets old to me. I sit here, staring at inanimate objects, KNOWING they are inanimate…yet neurons keep firing in my brain that endow these objects with human pathos.

There’s been a trend of emotional robots surfacing around the Internet these days (I love every minute of it).

Anton Tang makes brilliant use of our inability to avoid feeling something for objects placed in human positions and situations in his series of tiny cardboard people placed around Singapore.

Magical!
