"BondAge" Taps BDSM to Explore Our Relationship With Technology

Created by artist Thomas Ollivier.

Artist Thomas Ollivier returns with a new collection of images, exploring our relationship with technology — with an edge of sex-positivity.

Titled “BondAge,” Ollivier’s series playfully explores America’s favorite addiction: technology. Featuring Apple iPhones as butt plugs with a “plug to unlock” prompt, VR headsets with bar gags and iPhone whips that read “F0:M0,” Ollivier aims to “depict how technology is insidiously dominating humans by making them addicted to its power.” Essentially, it points to just how deeply technology is f-cking us, as we playfully peruse.

Brought to life via CG artist Peter Kolus and motion graphics designer Ed Saunt, “BondAge” is a raw exploration of how intertwined we allow our lives to be with technology. By the looks of it, it seems more feasible that tech will become an obsessive kink — if it hasn’t already. A stark contrast from conversations of “unplugging.”

Ollivier’s former collection, “Rebirth” also explored the evolution of technology with a witty take, featuring an Instagram Polaroid camera, Spotify Walkman and more. From “Rebirth” to “BondAge,” its clear technology’s role in our lives is increasingly growing which leaves us with a mindf-ck: Who would’ve thought that technology would aid us in developing a degradation kink?

Check out the cheeky collection via the gallery above.
