A future Marshall McLuhan?

Was making a beer run with Liz and Rachel when we passed by this interesting little piece of street art sort of matter-of-factly jutting out of the scenery on a gentrified Park Slope block. For those whose diagonal reading skills might be limited, the text on the box reads:

In a future time, children will work together to build a giant cyborg robot parade. Robot Parade. Robots obey what the children say

A school project perhaps? I like how it’s somewhat unclear if it’s on display, or if it’s been discarded (just below the box and out of view are the house’s trash bins) It’s a happy, childish and slightly eerie image. If the Narnia series were written by William Gibson, a robot parade obeying what the children say would definitely be in the story.
