Twitter Bot Generates Imaginary Moths

mothgenerator10

Lovely project by artists Loren Schmidt and Katie Rose Pipkin. Moth Generator (@mothgenerator) is a Twitter account that creates fantastical moths by combining randomly selected segments and colours of insect bodies. They even come complete with whimsical, faux nomenclatures like The Catskin Soybean (diella mulcanus) or Graceful-Infant Moth (maripatra incivia). More images below.

London-based artist Jonty Hurwitz transforms warped digital renderings into incredible anamorphic sculptures made out of bronze, copper, plaster and paint. “Anamorphosis” relates to purposeful distortions that depend on an additional device or precise vantage point to reconstruct the image. In Hurwitz’s case, cylindrical mirrors reveal each sculptures true form. See more below!
