Clubberjack\’s WordPress Experiment



Art Kick

Lately, I’ve been on an art kick. Two of my favorite artists, discovered through Clive Thompson’s Collision Detection, are El Rey and Bathsheba Grossman. El Rey has a great, playful pop-art style that contains pop-culture references along with some great portraiture (of animals and people). Bathsheba Grossman creates beautiful “math art,” sculptures that demonstrate mathematical ideas, though they are ideas that are a little beyond my level of understanding. These are the kind of things you could imagine M.C. Escher creating if he had access to rapid prototyping, 3D printer equipment. I would love to see some of her stuff blown up to a huge, monumental scale.
