homage to Tetsuo by ariscene homage to Tetsuo by ariscene
Hm...about this piece:
I had a circular tiled "plaza" made of foamcore sitting on my shelf for a couple of years, which I never used. So, I grabbed it, and in the spur of the moment, tore a big hole through it and started sticking stuff in it :D
It's probably one of my most expressionist pieces. I didn't plan anything or think while making it, and it helped channel quite a few annoying feelings (like a shrink, but free)....

The tubes and all the aggressive mechanical parts reminded me of Tetsuos transformations in Akira, so, I dedicated it to him since he is one of my favourite fictional characters :)

The whole thing is made of foamcore (cardboard and insulation material), plastic tubes, cables, plaster chunks and miscellaneous plastic junk.
And paint. Lots of it.

Oh...I haven't
I guess you mean Shinya Tsukamoto's Tetsuo!
I made this one inspired by Tetsuo from Akira, the manga :D

Byt still, it is relevant to the other one I suppose..!

I wish I had the time and patience to do work like that, the attention to detail is fantastic, and like you say it was kinda random but you would have had to have spent time cleaning it up and painting it to get it to appear so natural and surrealistic at the same time.

If I saw that in the middle of a square I'd think something horrible had burst from the ground or was still trying to...

Ah, your last comment captures the feeling I had in mind..
Something horrible bursting out of the ground. Order and chaos, stillness and aggression.
Modeling it took about 5 hours (I had the base ready), painting it took about 12.
Thanks for the kind words..! :)
