Digital Artefacts by Bart Hess presented at Architecture Triennale in Lisbon: ”A body plunges into the liquid; a crust of wax crystallises around its curves and folds, growing architectural forms, layer by layer.”

"Our bodies are end­lessly photographed, monitored and laser scanned with millimetre precision. From this context of surveillance, facial recognition, avatars and virtual ghosts, we imagine a near future where digital static, distortions and glitches become a new form of ornament. For the youth tribes of future perfect the body is a site for adaption, augmentation and experimentation. They celebrate the corrup­tion of the body data by moulding within their costumery all the imperfections of a decaying scan file. Shimmering in the exhibition landscape is a network of geometric reflec­tive pools of molten wax. Their mirrored surface is broken by a body, suspended from a robotic harness, plunging into the liquid. A crust of wax crystallises around its curves and folds, growing architectural forms, layer by layer, like a 3D printer drawing directly onto the skin. Slowly the body emerges, encased in a dripping wet readymade prosthetic. It is a physical glitch, a manifestation of corrupt data in motion, a digital artefact. They hang from hooks like a collection of strange beasts and frozen avatars. body prints, imperfect and distorted and always utterly unique." - Bart Hess via

Artist Bruce Yan has created a series called “Brand New,” in which he juxtaposes animated characters with famous brands.

"I started with a selection of iconic logos that utilized mascots within the designs," Yan says. "From there it was just a matter of finding animated subject matter that made sense to pair with the branding. That was challenging to some degree because I really wanted the branding and animated characters to blend seamlessly."

A brand new installation in the French Alps, called Step Into the Void, opens today for those who are not afraid of heights. On the uppermost terrace of Aiguille du Midi, Europe’s highest mountain peak, sits a glass cube that looks like it’s suspended in mid-air.
