Today they told me about Silver Steve. Put in a coin and Silver Steve moves. Silver Steve wears sunglasses because he doesn't want to look. Looking can be a very dangerous and scary thing. The eyes, I mean. I asked J, "why do you think he has sunglasses on? Its not very sunny is it?".
"maybe its because when so many people look at you and expect you to do a certain thing all the time it gets tiring and scary. So maybe he puts on his sunglasses as a kind of guard against people. Its role reversal, they're actually the exhibits and he's doing the watching."
So I thought to myself, thats nice, ok, so...thats what I'm gonna do. Like, Silver Steve.
