The picture, with its slanting, intersecting angles, makes us think of the blades of a camera's aperture mechanism. In a film, a robot's eyes would have the same mechanism and, in close-up, we would see the robot's eye dilate (to the inevitable accompaniment of the sound of a whirring electric motor), not to let in more light, but to express the robot's wonder at some new aspect of the natural world. A world that the manufactured, unnatural robot could never be wholly a part of. We would see the robot's memories, each represented as a captured image. We understand the concept of recording a moment by taking a photograph and so, in the film, each captured image would sound like the click of a mechanical shutter - because that's what photographs sound like. And the earliest of the robot's memories, the first photograph that its mechanical eye captured, would be this picture.
