The monster is not Frankenstein - the scientist who created him is Frankenstein.
Victor (the scientist) is obsessed with studying outdated theories of science that focus on achieving natural wonders.
At university, he excels at chemistry and other sciences, and develops a secret technique to imbue inanimate bodies with life. Victor constructs a reanimated creature we call Frankenstein but is actually referred to as "creature", "fiend", "demon" and "thing" in Mary Shelley's 1818 novel, Frankenstein.
Thus the reason our digital image is called Monster and not Frankenstein. I did not know this. Did you?? I guess Hollywierd put its own slant on the story and we ended up with a name mix up.
Mary Shelley, a woman wrote Frankenstein, the precursor to so much of the horror gender. I'd have loved a peek inside her mind. My kinda gal!
So to honor Frankenstein and his Monster I've "shed some light" on that legendarily creepy face with an illuminated lamp project.
