Rekka Bellum

Kokorobot is a mix of kokoro (heart, in Japanese) and robot to mean robot heart. It is meant to have a French pronunciation. It dates back to 2011, see the former logo[95.4 kB] for the website.

The author Rek lives aboard a sailboat somewhere in the Pacific Ocean.

See what they are reading right now, and what tools they are using. Rekka is a name that they chose, inspired from the name Rakka in the anime Haibane Renmei.

Website concepts

Below is the rough concept for the menu icons of kokorobot.ca. I sketched them on paper, photographed them with a shitty laptop camera and cleaned it up in Krita. I was inspired by Shaun Tan's old website (the recent version is not nearly as fun).

Politics

A short post to make it clear where I stand as a person, and with my work.

I am committed to fighting normative violence, fascism, colonialism, and white supremacy in all of its forms. To undermine the capitalist structure and its abusive scripts about human worth in relation to work, productivity, and ownership. To subvert oppressive gender norms and put in question the binary. To actively unlearn biased and colonial thinking.

I am aggressively opposed to racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, nationalism, ethnocentrism, religious fundamentalism, and oppressive and coercive power structures of all kinds.

Some of the wording borrowed from the fantastic Blood and Dust project.
