Bart Hess explores several fields textile, fashion and animation, all in between the commercial design and art world.
With his project hunt for hightech he “did not try to mimic real animal kingdoms but create a fantasy world of his own” making fake furs that react to our touch, awake our instincts, create new animal archetypes and are in all this incredibly... erotic I would say.
LucyandBart, is a collaboration between Lucy McRae and Bart Hess, “an instinctual stalking of fashion, architecture, performance and the body”. This project uses genetic manipulation, creating additive human shapes as fabric-like, low-tech ways of searching for human enhancement.
Amazing stuff! The work of this dutch artist is shown as a part of the 'dutch invertuals' exhibition during the milan design week 09.
