Architect Marc Fornes has a novel approach for testing fabrication techniques in his work: using code and the human form. His latest project, "Les Danseurs du Tailor", is a series of beautiful, dancing, aluminum sculptures which move and rotate into different positions. Because of the complex nature of these shapes, Fornes is able to test his digital fabrication theories which can be applied to his larger scale architectural projects.

Animal bodies inside humans or vice versa? Yup! Creepy, but fascinating. This animated series of photo composites created by Brian Andrews of San Francisco and produced at Ex’pression College for Digital Arts are amazing. Watch the creatures fly, leap, crawl and hunt.
