    Rusty Faces



Artist Statement:

    Our work ethics and life attitudes determine the degree to which we rust. With digital animation technology, Rusty Faces presents a contemporary artistic interpretation of the deterioration of mind, body, and spirit by harmful and self-destructive human behaviors.
    Pioneering digital metal printing and digital simulation of rust, the four LCDs portray the physical and mental regression of human rusting through animations transforming embryonic cells into fetuses, solid bodies into rusty bodies, and an energetic brain into a rusted, flaky shell.
