"Michael Rees: Sculpture - Large, Small and Moving"
2003-09-12 until 2003-10-18
New York, NY,
USA United States of America
Michael Rees' new work is an extraordinary blend of high technology, animation, and physical sculpture that is woven around the narrative of absurd virtual life. These multi-limbed creatures are hypnotic as they move in virtual, animate space. The sculptures are literally plucked from the animations and made flesh.
Human legs and fingers are joined to form fluid, acrobatic bodies that become sculpture, through 3d printing. The taxonomy of this species is surprisingly diverse. Some of the creatures are functional and some decidedly dysfunctional. They struggle in both states. They are combined and recombined to make a strange genus of some other species, s some throwback or fast forward, released from the Burgess Shale.
