Towering 23 feet (7 meters) into the sky, Karma is a recent sculpture installed in the Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at the New Orleans Museum of Art by Korean sculptor Do Ho Suh (previously). Captured here in a series of photographs by Alan Teo, the piece depicts a tower of piggy-backed men, each successively covering the eyes of the man below him, creating an illusion that the blinded tower seems to stretch to infinity like a fractal, although technically it was made from 98 cast stainless steel figures. The artist is known for his work with multiple figures, creating tornadoes, chain link fences, and frequently multiple small figures supporting the weight of what appears to be a pair of corporate or governmental shoes. A smaller broze version of Karma is also on view at the Albright Knox Museum in Buffalo. (via my modern met, alan teo)
I love watching Face Off on Syfy. Anthony (from Chicago!) and Eric are also my favorite contestants. Creative, experienced, and impressive.
Let’s take a second, or a minute, or whatever amount of time floats your boat (or powers your scooter for all you landlubbers) to appreciate the talent of these two Face Off contestants. You go Anthony and Eric! (And by go, I mean keep being awesome. Please don’t go away.)
Been a longtime fan of Femke’s. Quirky, macabre, and completely unique.

The boots are pretty sweet, but this article by io9 today about this made me giggle…

I created the Automa Series to act as a fictional replacement of human beings. This particular set focuses on their construction… which acts as a metaphor for the creative process. Plans for showing them “out in the wild” so to speak, is in the pipeline. But I’m gonna take a break from them for awhile. I’m a fan of details though so the lore behind these will probably become pretty intricate by the time I’m finished with the whole project. This set of images represents about a year’s worth of work… and many many hours of love:)
Here is a link to the Automa Manual I made to supplement the drawings:
