A robot works on a production line – and discovers a sense of curiosity. That is, plotwise, just about it but watch Obsolete because the colors are simply stunning, evoking a world boiling in heat. No clues are given as to what caused this environment yet one suspects human hand even if not a single homo sapiens appears. Yet despite our absence, Obsolete is brimming with pathos.
Obsolete was created by Smoking Robot, aka Lewis Gray and Esra Guldal, two students studying MDes Graphic Design at Sheffield Hallam University, specialising in motion and video.
