Some stuff I've been looking at

syjuco: projects: comparative morphologies

"What looks like vintage natural history studies turns out to be, on closer inspection, images of computer and technological cords and peripherals, each slightly manipulated to take on organic characteristics--a fused or sprouting growth from a stem, a viral infection, or a radial symmetry."

Some nice art here. If you're in NYC, she's in a show now at the Whitney until March 27th.

Showing with her is Walton Ford (image above), an amazing painter.

This is by the Australian artist Patricia Piccinini, who had a show in Tokyo before we arrived here. Hopefully we'll get a chance to see something by her soon. You can see more of her work here. The work is all about the intersection of nature and technology and questioning the "natural". Good stuff.
