placed horizontally on the ground, giving the appearance of visitors
climbing or hanging off the side of the building

Polish designer and illustration Janusz Jurek explores the different shapes of generative illustration through the human body. Generative art is computer generated artwork based on algorithm. It can also be achieved through chemistry, biology, robotics, smart materials, manual randomization, mathematics, data mapping, symmetry, tiling, and other compounds.
In Jurek’s Papilarnie series, a bundle of electric lines resemble a 3D figure of the human form. The piece delivers high energy and stunning results, which depict the multiple layers and complexity of human biology.
‘We eat light, drink it in through our skins. With a little more exposure to light, you feel part of things physically.

Iranian visual artist Shirin Abedinirad (previously featured here) has installed her latest piece titled, Mirrored Ziggurat near a body of water in Sydney, Australia. As part of Underbelly Arts Festival, the pyramid is composed of mirrors, which reflect the fascination between time, space, while exploring the means and function of optical illusions. Every angle is reflected, which creates an alternate dimension on a small space, which seems to disappear and reappear continually.
