Human Gardens and Adjustable Plastic Surgery

No, we’re not in blodge (biology) lesson; I’m talking about Lucy and Bart.

This zany partnership can’t decide whether they are fashion designers, architects, performers or scientists but they know how to transform a body. As perfectionists, they don’t think we’re good enough as we are so they’re all about human enhancement.

They’ll use anything from shards of wood, bath foam and balloons to distort human bodies.

They aren’t shrinking violets; a girl who unwittingly participated in one of their performances in Holland got some FREE plastic surgery, by having hooks and eyes glued to her face to adjust her features.

One of their photos reminded me of muscles, which drew me in. I like the way how balloons and tights is such a simple yet effective way of making fake muscles. Topped with realistic looking veins to really complete the outfit.

  7. Eerie and grotesque...I like it. You should check out Levi van Veluw's work. I think you'd really like it. He does self portraits and alters his face with materials instead of photoshop. The photographs are amazing.
