Artificial Boys

7:45 pm artificial boy, childhood, identity, media, photos, test cases

I made a gallery of other artificial boys I know! I’ll add more if I find any! Maybe someday it will be a public gallery of other artificial children like me. For now its in my playhouse and only close friends can see it. Sorry.

(( Adz identifies with famous artificial boys, David featured in A.I. Artificial Intelligence (2001), and D.A.R.Y.L., a 1985 film by the same name.

By the way, it is a coincidence that my little brother is named David. However one of the first things I did upon meeting David was give him a “My name is David!” gesture complete with an audio clip from the film. :)

    AI is one of my favourite films. My email is on the promotional poster because I played the viral game leading up to the movie. I just wish the movie had ended with David under water…

    Is Astroboy on your list?

    And if you like Pinnochio, there’s a japanese movie called Hinokio that’s somewhat similar. I found it very moving.

    For what it’s worth, I’m finding myself playing a second childhood in Second Life as well. More power to you, Adz!

    Thanks, Snicker.
    No I haven’t seen Astroboy. I will look for that film and Hinokio ASAP.
    I hope you’re enjoying your second childhood. IM me in world, and I’ll give you a small gift. The gift has something to do with the film, A.I.
