“Venus of Google” by Artist Matthew Plummer-Fernandez

Venus2

Colombian-British artist Matthew Plummer-Fernandez explores the use of technology to create an infinity of cultural artifacts. “Venus of Google” is a google image search of a woman modelling a body-wrap garment turned into a 3D printable object.

Using an algorithmic image-comparison technique, which starts with a plain box shape and tries thousands of random configurations before mutating into something resembling the found image, the project speaks to Plummer-Fernandez’s interest in the paradox of technology as simultaneously advanced and primitive. Check out more images and a video clip of the process below!

Artist Spotlight: Carson Davis Brown

“Mass” is a project by artist Carson Davis Brown in which he creates sculptures inside of big-box stores and other places of mass. He constructs the unauthorized installations, photographs them, and then leaves them to be discovered by shoppers and staff. Images of the installations are printed, framed (using un-sold frames), and exhibited inside the stores without permission. See more images from the series below as well as video clips documenting the building of installations using cameras tethered to in-store camera displays!
