In Shelley’s time, some people believed that you could bring the dead back to life by running a current of electricity through their bodies. I have created some extinct animals using an electronic circuit board, clockwork cogs, taps, pipes and valves. The quagga went extinct in 1883, but no one noticed so I recreated it with bright stripes so its unmissable.

When we think of Frankenstein, we think of Boris Karloff’s monster with an overlarge head with bolts through its neck. I have made a new version with clock cogs in mouldy green tones.
