I’ve been seeing a lot of really cool photosculpture which seems to have surfaced all at once recently, and it always puts me in mind of the amazing art of David Meanix on my favourite show in the world, HBO’s Six Feet Under (which sadly ended in 2005). Davids’ photosculpture, which he has been developing since the early 90’s, was featured in season four of the show (2004), as the work of the character Claire Fisher. I remember being blown away when I saw that particular episode and wishing I could come up with something so inspired and original :).
David shares his thoughts about the process of working on his pieces with the individual actors from the show here (scroll down), as well as lots of insights about his work and life in general.

Bobby McFerrin demonstrates the power of the pentatonic scale at the World Science Festival – amazing stuff.
The event, ‘Notes & Neurons: In Search Of A Common Chorus’ can be seen here on the World Science Festival website – it’s well worth watching in it’s entirety.
These wonderfully lifelike fabric sculptures are made by Lisa Lichtenfels, who having graduated from the Philadelphia College Of Art with majors in illustration and film, worked for Disney making three dimensional figures with posable skeletons for stop motion animations. She left Disney in order to explore and develop this medium further, and has been making her amazing fabric models – which range in size from under five inches to life-sized – ever since.
Sam Jinks is a Melbourne based sculptor with a background in film and television effects. He creates full sized silicon models which look as if they might move or breathe at any moment. This interview with Sam over at Australian Edge goes into his background, inspiration and creative process.
