Submerged Installations Create A Fantasy World Under The Sea [Pics]
Artists Hortense Le Calvez and Mathieu Goussin build sculptures that are designed to be underwater.
Artists Hortense Le Calvez and Mathieu Goussin of Forlane 6 Studio create sculptures that are designed to be submerged underwater and not exhibited in a gallery or museum.
Their projects imagine a post-human era where natural and man-made objects come together in a seemingly new and foreign environment. The sculptures are influenced by factors like buoyancy, the water currents or air, and create an underwater world of science and fantasy.
The duo’s installations include a set of three disco balls, colorful wigs on machinery that turn them to self-propelling creatures, clumps of paper that appear like a strange seaweed, among others.
