A bra and a horse made of vintage computer keys

How about the girl’s top. Fun teaser, huh?

If you think her computer key bra is cool, check out this fantastic work of art made with around 18,000 vintage computer keys. Vivian just happened to come across it during an internet search and fell in love with it.

The article that goes with the sculpture(?) is by Christopher Jobson, posting for the thisiscolassal.com website, dated October 2, 2012.

Jobson writes, “I’m not sure I fully understand the meaning behind this great sculpture made of resin and recycled computer keys by Babis Cloud, but I certainly enjoy looking at it. The piece is titled Hedonism(y) Trojaner, derived from the giant mythological Trojan horse built by the Greeks that was used to sneak an elite force of soldiers into the city of Troy under the charade of presenting the city with a gift.”

He continues, “On some level I suppose Babis is making a reference to the negative aspects of technology (viruses, irrational dependence on computers), but you can read a bit more explanation over on iGNANT. If you liked this also check out the work of Sarah Frost.”

The artwork also suggests this technology overload directs us away from genuine relationships or interactions with the real world and nature.
