Illustration for article titled A world with more William Gibson LEGO sets is a world we can live in

When it comes to literary characters to depict in LEGO, you can't beat Jones, the cybernetic, heroin-addicted dolphin from William Gibson's 1981 tale Johnny Mnemonic. Explains sculptor Cole Blaq:

What does a heroin junky dolphin do in Nighttown? Well I guess dreaming of electric sheep or riding the horse. But hey, what else could a wave-riding animal enjoy when being imprisoned in a technological cage. Inspired by Gibson's Mnemonic featuring Jones in his tank and Jones' cyberspace ego riding the crystal edges of the matrix.
