Robot Ninja

Jonathan Monaghan’s Robot Ninja combines male stereotypes frequently represented by characters in popular video games with symbols of institutional power and wealth. Trade-mark icons of Monaghan’s preferred aesthetics feature throughout the film: a rainbow, logos of global businesses, a crown, gothic and baroque architectural features. Monaghan describes Robot Ninja as a “cultural conflation of war, authority and the super-human”. Using high-end 3D animation software, the monstrous robotic harbinger combines the past and mythology with elements ripped directly from video games.
