This is sort of a ripoff (no really, it was inspiration!) of Ghost in the Shell, Lain, and the "All is Full of Love" video (Björk). I almost put some H. R. Giger-ish stuff in there too but I ended up just choosing a plain white background, after about 3 weeks of slow renders and fussing with different background scenes.
It's sort of about mankind's increasing reliance on technology, and how we're for the most part actually revelling in it. Not that I'm one of those backwards anti-technology freaks, I'm pretty guilty of it myself hehe, everything is digital now.. I use a wacom tablet to draw, digital camera to take pictures, mp3 cd player to listen to music, the internet for communication, synthesizers to write music, word processor to write, etc etc.
Anyway I just thought that was kind of interesting. It's actually a sort of cliché theme but oh well, sometimes I like that stuff :b
I'm glad you went with the white background... It lends a certain brightness and oversaturation to the picture that makes it feel even more mechanical and cold... Very impressive, both on a conceptual level and on a technical level as well...
