This sculptural installation is the first of the three-part “Super Robot - Suffer Reboot Series.” It is an artistic interpretation of the Artist’s childhood memory when beloved anime robot TV shows (Voltes V, Mazinger Z, Daimos, etc.) were banned from airing under the Marcos Regime supposedly due to excessive violence. This event was the start of the Artist’s awakening to the realities of Martial Law.
Voltes V is used as a take-off point to a discourse on martial rule and its impact on Philippine society. The art installation melds fictional characters from Voltes V with personalities during Martial Law.
