Frecklefaced29 aka May Ann Licudine aka May Ann Lumbang Licudine aka Mall (Filipino, b. 1981, Dagupan City, Philippines, based San Fernando City, La Union) - 1: Akane 2: Hanako 3: Chihiro 4: Kanako 5: Iwata 6: Ciou 7: Ayumi 8: Yoko 9: Maiko 10: Shiori from Innocent Girls III series, 2013 Drawings: Graphite on Paper
The human body is composed of 18% carbon, but San Francisco-based sculptor Agelio Batle (previously featured here) has created a life-size human skeleton that’s 100% carbon. Entitled Ash Dancer, this graphite skellington is a both art and artistic medium.
“When placed on a custom made high-frequency vibrating table, the bones of the skeleton rub marks onto the surface, slowly creating an outline of its own form. The more the work rubs against the table, the more of itself is left behind, slowly transforming the graphite from sculpture to abstract drawings which Batle refers to as Ash Dances.”
