The Story

This is a drawing of a Paradise-Bird. These striking birds were considered the essence of beauty and adorned the crowns of native leaders, for example. Polyhedra are regular. This regularity appears beautiful for us, balanced and an expression of perfection. Reason enough to connect this drawing of a bird with a polyhedron.

The Process

My collages are based on historical drawings of animals, either from early scientific expeditions or natural history studies. Using image processing, I transform individual parts of the drawn animal bodies into geometric shapes. In a final step, I combine the original drawing and the polyhedron to create a hybrid new animal.
