In the oeuvre of Eggert / Ricklefs the work "The Limits of Control: Mainframes" aims at the question of whether and how a contemporary artistic manifestation of ideas of technology and grandeur can be found. The model for the sculptures was found in the most recent IBM mainframe series as an example of a monumental body whose exterior gestalt is designed to reflect ideas of omnipotence and highest level of development.
