It's hard to say whether this sculpture depicts a machine that gives you migraines, or a machine that's having a migraine. You'll have even more questions when you see this artist's female bot nudes.

What I love about Greg Brotherton's work is the way he manages to capture intense physical states in cold metal. Anyone who has ever had a horrible headache can feel what this sculpture is about. And anyone who has ever found themselves unable to look away from certain parts of other people's bodies knows why those two breasts turn into giant, glaring headlights.

The nude below is halfway between being an artist's dummy and an awkward bot who is just trying to figure out how to operate her brand-new body.


California artist Brotherton does concept art for films as well as these haunting robot sculptures. Check out his gallery for more awkward, intense loveliness.
