Surrealist sculptures by Magnus Sebastian merge human form and machine


Combining mannequins and discarded pieces of technology into stunningly intricate sculptures, Magnus Sebastian has created an array of surreal artworks. The Florida-based artist makes what he calls "post industrial trans-human sculptures. Look at one of his pieces from one angle and you'll see a human form. Look at it from a reverse angle and you see an effigy filled with old machine parts and electronic components.

Sebastian's artist statement explains, "I want those who inspect my work to see the beauty of form and be intrigued by the mechanical foundations. I want the viewer to be drawn to the illusory patinas and mechanisms – to walk the line between dream and reality and experience the loss of humanity that technology has wrought." Sebastian offers more personal insight behind his art at his website.
