The Boy is the forth of Kyle La Fever's series, '4G-0T-10 (Forgotten),' featuring intimate portraits of cherished robot toys. This collection delves into nostalgia, exploring an adult's reflection on the profound connections formed between children and their favorite toys. These playthings transcended mere metal and plastic, acquiring nicknames, personalities, and relationships beyond their intended character.

In an effort to elevate and humanize these robot toys, Kyle La Fever chose the classical art form of portraiture. Children perceived these toys as having lives of their own, and Kyle aims to immortalize this connection through a series of sincere portraits.

Beyond being Kyle's favored childhood companions, these robots symbolize a broader commentary on AI-generated art. In embracing the irony, Kyle created this series as a testament to the kind of AI art he envisions—artwork that humanizes robots, offering a unique perspective in contrast to AI creations simulating one of humanity's most inherently human pursuits: the creation of art.

The Boy is a robot Kyle picked up for his children at a comic convention and saw a full life being played with by multiple kids and is still one of the coolests toys in the house.
