The start of a new story

It all started with one image…

From http://ng02.deviantart.com/art/Medusa-3000-310623893

And for some reason, it made me think of “crucified as a warning to others” – Spartacus, the Roman habit of crucifying rebels/slaves etc along the highways so that everyone could see them…

But how would you imprison an android? (In glass). And why?

So I’m starting with that image – rows of glass blocks along a deserted highway, all containing these beautiful, silent machines, placed there as a warning.

It’s provisionally titled “Isolation and connections”.
