Our friends over at STRANGEco have just announced the release of “Mainframe”, a really cool new series rotocast figures by Dean Bradley that take the form of angry, axe wielding anthropomorphic computers.
Created in 2002, Mainframe is an exploration about our delicate relationship with technology. Begun as a series of paintings, the image and concept of Mainframe took root and spread rapidly across the globe. Through stickers, gallery shows, television exposure and now the STRANGEco collaboration, the concept of Mainframe has taken on a life of his own, much like the computer it was born from.
“I was spending a lot of time in front of my computer. I felt like the computer was a part of me. I realized there was a conflict within, a struggle between nature and technology.”- Dean Bradley
