Since the earliest days of her artistic career, Michigan artist Anne Mondro has been captivated by human anatomy, creating her own interpretations of internal organs and body forms through crocheted sculptures. Working with thin steel and copper wire, she spends hundreds of hours on a single artwork, manifesting her own interpretations of hearts, lungs, limbs, and even entire bodies. “Crocheting wire enables me to create interwoven forms that are structurally strong, yet visually and physically light,” Mondro shares. “The forms allude to ethereal silhouettes associated with shadows, ghosts or decay.”

Though anatomy is an ongoing focus for Mondo, she’s also lent her crocheting abilities to the construction of more mechanical objects, namely the recreation of a Model T engine for the 2011 Love Lace exhibition at thePowerhouse Museum.

Late this year Mondo has an exhibition at Ceres Gallery in New York titled Intertwine, and you can explore more of her work here. (via Bored Panda).

Her technique is as our grandmothers will do it but her taste is so sublime that will catch your hearth and eye at once…

Tauba Auerbach (previously) partnered with Printed Matter to publish the project [2,3], a large-scale book that exists between a children’s pop-up and sculptural object. The project folds neatly into its own custom sleeve, and contains six separate paper sculptures that spring to life when opened. Director Sam Fleischner filmed the project’s unboxing, catching the sweetly satisfying sounds of the books creaking to open, and the objects inside slowing falling into place. You can see more of Auerbach’s designs on Instagram. (via Juxtapoz)
