Dystopias in Technological Utopias

This vertical print is bisected by four horizontal light blue squares approximately one third of the way up from the bottom. The second square from the left is joined by a square above and below so that all the liight blue squares create a horizontally oriented cross. Both inside and outside the cross-grid there are seven tan figures, who seem to be engaged in a variety of activities. There are a number of designs that move out from the cross, some related to what is pictured inside and some not. The print is signed and dated (l.l.) "Matta 47" and numbered (l.r.) "57/70" in pencil.

A portrait image in two tones of blue printed slightly off match, showing a man at the center dressed in a white shirt, tie and slacks, with dark-rimmed glasses. The man is leaning over a automoton/robot, which is seated to the left of him. On the right and to the back, are two more standing robots. Each robot has humanoid features like a face, torso, arms, hands, legs, and feet with boots on. Two of the robots, one seated and one to the back at the center, have their internal workings revealed with their central torso panel removed, showing wires and indeterminate parts.

This ink drawing on paper has a black wash ground, with two figures drawn in opaque black ink. On the right, a comic figure, in only boxers and a pointed hat, dances. His right leg has been kicked through a television set that he holds with his right hand. Scissors fall from his left hand towards what looks like a two-slot toaster on the ground. A black, horned beast lurks in the background, holding a phone overhead that has two earpieces, attached together with no cradle.  In the background, a headstone-shaped form silhouettes the dancing figure.<br /><br />
The drawing is signed and dated in ink (l.l.) "KOSTABI 1984".
