Monsters, Maidens, and Mayhem: The Art of Kristian Hammerstad

Norwegian artist and animator, Kristian Hammerstad, has a flair for the grotesque.

Hammerstad's vibrant, pop-gore illustrations read like the pages of an old comic book, with their thick lines and bold colors. His subjects frequently include werewolves, skeletons, cyborgs, zombies, and beautiful but menacing women, conjuring up clips of dated horror, science fiction and noir films. He cites artists Charles Burns, Daniel Clowes, and Chris Ware as some of his major influences, along with comic book artists like Katsuhiro Otomo, Hal Foster, and Will Eisner. His work has graced the pages of the New Yorker, Wired Magazine, and the New York Times, among other notable publications.

Wall of 81 "Erectable" Penises: the Art Installation that Reacts to Viewers

Give us 3D printers, and this is what we do with them.

Peiqi Su, a student at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, is the visionary behind the project, which is aptly titled, the Penis Wall. Using 3D printing technology, Su created a wall of 81 motion-operated, six-segment penises. The penises are attached to motors and an ultrasonic distance sensor, which causes them to rise and fall. Their movement can be triggered by viewers, as seen in the video below. They can also be programmed to reflect the fluctuation of the stock market or even choreographed to music (because, why not?).
