In earlier times, giraffes were the most exotic and crazy animal of all for European eyes. The weirdest and also most irrational thing that nature can produce. I have partially transformed this giraffe into a polyhedron as an expression of the most rational thing imaginable. The result is a hybrid of nature and mathematics.
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.
