Phytoborg 2: Surreal Evolution, 2015
Graphite Drawing
Andrew Lincoln Nelson

The Phytoborg series is a subseries of the Living Machines series of Detailed Graphite renderings.  A “Phytoborg” is a vegetative life-form that fuses machine and living plant-like elements.  As with the machine-creatures in the Living Machine series, these vegetative machine-plant creatures embody visions of post-technology life or of exo-biological life.  The “tree” in “Phytoborg 2” is largely organic in appearance, but includes cube-like shapes that suggest a machine or non-biological origin.  The drawing is more overtly surrealistic than other drawings in this series and may serve at the genesis of a series of Surrealistic Evolution images.

It makes me think that one could feel the texture under the fingers. Really amazing rendering, but also the idea in itself. Fusing something alien with something natural really gives it a repulsed/interested vibe.
