TinMan is the Sixth 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.

Tinman is a robot Kyle found at a comic and toy convention in Madison Wisconsin in 2023. He had looked for some of these tin robots for months and was so excited that he snached up all three the seller had. This was was probably in the worst shape, head falling off and visual ware and tare on teh shoulder joint showed it was loved and had a life outside of that box it came with it, which was perfect for this series
