“In the digital realm, we are naked all the time,” flashes the text in the promotional video for x.pose, a project by Xuedi Chen and Pedro Oliveira. The sculpture is composed of several layers, one of which is a reactive display that, using bluetooth, alternates between transparent and opaque depending on the amount of personal data […]

Kara Walker’s A Subtlety or the Marvelous Sugar Baby is not subtle. Dusted with 40 tons of bleached sugar, it stands nearly four stories high and lays 75 and a half feet long across the gutted cavern of the Domino Sugar Factory, which will soon to destroyed and replaced with a glossy condo complex. The New Yorker called the work, unsubtly, “Mammy-as-Sphnix.” […]

Here’s a fresh artwork by David Renault over at F.A.T. It involves breaking into a lot of abandoned construction equipment in Saint-Jacques-de-la-Lande of north-western France with a horn, some air tubes and something sharp enough to punch through industrial strength tire. Presenting, Dernier Souffle (The Last Breath). Honk your dead heart out, you annoying fucking thing. Renault’s past “Previously […]

Shine a strobe light, however, or film it playing at the right shutter speed, and you’re treated to a delightful zoetrope animation. Check it out below. Sculpture is […]

The last time we checked in on the Harvest Dome, the upcycled art orb made of old umbrellas and soda bottles was washed up on Riker’s Island, its journey around NYC’s rivers sidelined by the marooning. Now, hopefully with the help of a $5,000 Kickstarter Campaign, the dome is making its way to the notoriously […]

From a flattened, remixed kid-face shuffling on a video billboard in Detroit, to the epic mutant on the exquisite corpse Tumblr project Cloaque, Rollin Leonard has been exhibiting photography-based work since 2004. It’s body horror… if body horror was very nice to look at. His first solo show of polished plexiglass’ed sculptures, looped moving images and digital collages “Trunks, Stems and […]

Dan Grayber’s sculptures look completely utilitarian. Intricately constructed from springs, nuts and bolts, and custom-fabricated metal, they wouldn’t look out of place under the hood of your car, or in the more specialized corners of your local hardware store. But they don’t actually do anything. Well, they do something. They’re all incased in glass, and designed to […]

Benjamin Muzzin‘s work evokes the third dimension by rigging flatscreen television screens to a machine capable of spinning them at very high speeds. This creates, beautiful fleeting structures of light. Watch the sculpture change its entire fluid digital shape with only small variations on the thickness of the lines presented on the spinning 2D screen. With this project […]

Every part of Digital Grotesque — “the first human-scale immersive space entirely constructed out of 3D printed sandstone” — was designed with customized algorithms. Michael Hansmeyer and Benjamin Dillenburger sculptural installation is a flat cube on the outside and an intricate subversion of classical sculpture on the inside, twisting and melting, sprouting and mirroring with “a complex geometry” of “260 million specified micro-details.” There are some […]
