I’ve always been fascinated by bones and skulls and recently found dead a local shop where I can pick some up. Now, on to the creative process. 🙂
As a musician, especially as a bass player, I have always been fascinated with the effect sound can have on physical objects. As a builder of instruments, the way sound moves the body of the instrument is critical to how it sounds.
Using sound and liquid, these folks have done a great job of showing us what our ear have been saying for years. That sound looks pretty cool.
I am not much for a lot of the art out there. Some of it is confusing and much is just weird. This stuff, on the other hand, is weird in a fantastic way. I don’t know if it is the industrial aspect of it, the moody lack of color or even that it looks like a world still under construction but something about it really caught my eye.
There is something about a run down, creepy building. The way the paint is coming off the walls, the patina and layers of dust on everything…it just speaks to an odd part of the mind and makes you want to look closer.
Jeremy Harris has collected some excellent imagery showing this almost disturbing effect to a fine degree.
I find it reminds me of the images I have seen of the Chernobyl area after the meltdown nearly 30 years ago. I think the most compelling part of these are the images from schools and hospitals, where a child’s toys can be found in close proximity to piles of gas masks and scattered belonging. Gets to me every time.
There are many things in this world that amaze me, and many more that are beyond my ability to figure it out. This man’s sculptures fit into both categories and are nothing short of incredible!
I had a Photoshop class with Jim a year or two ago and his skills, patience and talent are almost as epic as his work.
