Project details

Overview

This throne speaks for itself, literally. It's created from Frankenstein-ed old toys and former household furniture with a spark of electronics. It features a joystick to control the movements as well as ultrasonic sensors; should you get too close, the horrible boys will awaken.

There is a beautiful union between horror and comedy that I can't help but explore. Both genres feature the notion of modifying of a familiar concept to elicit an intense emotional response. With Sesame Street existing for 50 years, just about everyone has some nostalgia for our favourite little monster Elmo. So, I have destroyed him and put him back together in this horrific yet utterly captivating way.

Moreover, this was a test of my own creative and construction abilities. I love traditional art, but I am truly obsessed with robotics. In the monstrous fusing of my two loves, it is only apt that something both wonderful and terrible was born.
