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.

(Some of the images with the interview and on Sam’s website depict nudity, and so may not be safe for work!)

 

Benjamin Jones and Anna Hecker have created Discarded – a 30′ long creature made entirely from discarded furniture found on the streets of Brooklyn.  The Black Rock Arts website had this to say about the project and about people’s general feeling about using found objects – and I couldn’t have said it better myself… I think people need to take this on board and have a serious rethink about second-hand materials:

‘While the sidewalks of New York City on trash night are a rich resource of useful items and cultural artifacts, most New Yorkers hold pre-conceived fears of tapping into this resource: practical fears of dirt and vermin, and emotional fears based on  the societal perception of welcoming discarded items into our homes. The resulting  obsession with new purchases saps the world of natural resources, and the ease of  shopping versus crafting creates a psychic distance from our belongings that enables  us to acquire and discard at will. By refocusing our communities on the process of  foraging and creation, we can help transform our society into one that values originality and sustainability rather than purposeless consumption.’

Superbly crafted 1:43 scale (and smaller) scenes by Thomas Doyle.  And all with a strange, slightly sinister feel – my favourite 🙂

International driftwood sculptor Heather Jansch makes these incredibly lifelike, full sized animal sculptures from driftwood she has collected from beaches after high tide.  Heather has a gift for capturing movement in her pieces… from a distance, they look like real animals.
