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.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
