Flint Artifacts: Buick City Paint Team Patch

Working together...with a paint robot. Thanks to Shawn Chittle for the Flint Artifact.

  1. Looks cute at the time on this patch, however the robot ended up taking over the job of the human.

    I avoid those self-checkouts at Meijer, and other places that have them. They remind me of tombstones which might read "This machine now represents a job that a human being no longer has." It's a way of saying that the once important worker has now been outsourced to technology. They don't take coffee breaks, have to be paid, or chew the fat & gossip in the break room.

  2. That robot looks like a huddled raptor, perched ready to take out his prey with a solar death ray emanating from it's beak.

Thanks for commenting. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at www.teardownbook.com.
