A Computerized Man Emerges from Wood Logs

If you are in Amsterdam, you must check out Rocco Pezzella’s new art show titled “QUID” at the Kallebach Gallery. His collection displays futuristic shapes that look morphed from organic pieces of wood. Could this be an analysis of our human evolution? Pezzella doesn’t reveal much about his art other than it originated from experiments and traditional and digital tools. His work is indeed beautifully handcrafted, a bit old-school as shown in the video at bottom, but also marked with his current interests in motion and 3D computer graphics.
