  • Wow. This guy’s stuff is incredible! So simple and yet so precisely thought out. Impeccable execution!

  • Emily

    it might even just be me being backwards, but does anyone else thing that the wings in the first one might look better if they were on the other way around….

  • Maciel

    Emily, I kind of agree with you on that one. Although maybe the artist felt the pointier (don’t know what that part of an anvil is called) better resembled a bird’s beak. I personally feel it might better resemble a bird’s tail, thus making the illustration feel a little more balanced. Regardless, these are pretty wicked.

  • M

    he seems to use the same texture as the background for three of the four shown here.

    I like the simplicity and restricted palate.

Intricately Crocheted Coral Reefs

Coral2

Toxic Seas is a passion project started in 2005 by academics and artistic partners Margaret and Christine Wertheim. The series of handmade coral reefs are meant to raise awareness about environmental issues (such as the fragile state of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef) by creating a greater appreciation for the complex design of natural formations (demonstrated through the algorithmic art of crochet). See more images below or on display at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York from September 30th until February 5th.
