Wire Sculptures Look Like Computer Models

Saturday 05.28.2011 , Posted by

Using tools of his own devising, he weaves together precise replicas of wheeled vehicles, here highlighted by his “Blue CJ 750″ (a Chiangjiang 750 motorcycle with sidecar) and “Beijing Jeep’s Shadow” (the chassis of a military vehicle). It’s a virtual reality you can reach out and touch.
