Dundee based Scotish artist Sam Lyon creates incredible Jelly Gummies GIFs that are three-dimensional and full of texture. Every face-crease, every stomach bulge, every wobbly bit is so over-pronounced, and moves as if it’s full of goo.
He usually starts off with a photo of a dog or a toy or a persons face and work from there, sometimes it’s just a case of opening up a program and seeing what happens. He uses Sculptris and Blender to make everything. Sculptris is a free digital sculpting program that’s really easy to use with a graphics tablet and Blender is a great free modeling/ sculpting/ animation/ rendering program that he uses to add any final touches to the sculpted model and arrange the scene.
Scotland-based laser physicist-turned-artist and web developer Tom Beddard, aka subBlue, has produced a number of intriguing geometric forms he refers to as Fabergé Fractals. Like an ornate Fabergé egg, Beddard’s creations boast brilliant and intricate design patterns. The English artist uses a formulaic method to create his digitally rendered three-dimensional models.
The 3D fractals are generated by iterative formulas whereby the output of one iteration forms the input for the next. The formulas effectively fold, scale, rotate or flip space. They are truly fractal in the fact that more and more detail can be revealed the closer to the surface you travel.
Artist Jessica Harrison creates these fascinating and disturbing skin sculptures made from casts of the palms and backs of her hands. The Scotland-based artist has the sculptures photographed against her real skin, so viewers see the sculptures as an extension of her body.
We like it when things get flipped a bit… Moneyless, whom we met at FAME Festival last year, and Mark Lyken teamed up in Glasgow, Scotland to drop some spaced-out street pieces. Another dimension, another dimension…
