Artist Heather Dewey-Hagborg creates “Stranger Visions” from stuff we discard publicly without a second thought. Gleaning genetic information from things like chewing gum and cigarette butts, Dewey-Hagborg creates detailed masks of what the person might look like, raising questions about privacy and the implications of genetic tampering. See more images and a short video of Dewey-Hagborg discussing her project below.
Japanese Artist Yuichi Ikehata’s works are a clever combination of digital and physical. Photos of sculptures made of wire, clay, and paper are subtly merged with images of the artist’s own body painted white. The viewer is left to question what’s real. See more of Ikehata’s work below.
You might recall Austrian artist Thomas Medicus’ hand-painted, anamorphic sculpture the “Emergence Lab” we posted back in December. Well Medicus has unveiled a new project: a floating sculpture shaped like a giant amoeba. The abstract piece is gorgeously detailed, capturing the idea of those shining aspects of life that pique our curiosity and urge us to take a closer look. Check out more images below!
