animalis polyedae XI by Volker Hermes

The Story

In my collages, I have tried to incorporate any fur drawings, patterns or something similar, into the fields of the mathematical form. In this way, a relationship is established between the individuality of the animal and the generality of geometry.


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.
