The Vacanti Man by Rob Elford explores an allegorical visual narrative of pixelated body horror inspired by the experiments of Charles Vacanti, who cultivated human limbs under a subject’s skin. It explores Freudian, quasi-religious projections of masculinity, which are represented by the reoccurring imagery of the eye and the hand.
Ver la obra del artista Casey Gray pintada con latas de spray ya sería motivo suficiente para disfrutar de un buen rato deleitándonos con sus geniales cuadros pero si encima podemos ver el proceso, verle trabajar en una de sus últimas pinturas, reserva a reserva, color a color, pasa a ser un verdadero lujazo.
In this hand drawn animation by Johan Rijpma a line is being extrapolated through a grid. When the line surpasses the boundaries of the grid, the process spreads to and reflects on its surroundings.

The table by Simon Johns is an asymmetrical two part piece, with a space that divides it as the river divides the valley. The black ash wood was felled, milled and dried in the area, and the stone is from the river’s banks. The stone and plank that support the two parts form a continuous axis end to end, through the divide. The beauty of the brutalist natural stone, contrasts and converses with the delicate craftsmanship of the wood plateau.
