Hunt for High Tech

Part sci-fi, part animal, part robot, and part human. Artist Bart Hess did not try to mimic real animals in his project titled “Hunt for High Tech”, but rather, create a fantasy world all his own…

Hess started by imagining fantasy animals; animals that could be genetically manipulated, part robot, part organic. He thought about things like how they would move in their environment and what they felt like to touch. He created “high-tech” furs for them. He thought about tactile qualities like reflection, the way the hair grows and three dimensionality and took these characteristics, magnified them, manipulated and exaggerated them.
