Animatus

A new series of works by artist Hyungkoo Lee called "Animatus" features hand-fabricated skeletons of cartoon characters along with detailed anatomical drawings. According to the artist, the Animatus series started with the "intention to analyze anatomical structures and physical forms of animation characters, within the hypothesis to visualize their possible anatomical foundation." Lee constructs the skeletons using a hybrid mix of real animal bones and synthetic materials.

Yes, I agree. And Lee's skeletons are so amazing because they make it really clear, by basing 'reality' on fiction instead of the other way around.

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
