Tal-Avitzur-Robots-Small

Artist Tal Avitzur makes robots. Specifically robots made of junk that no one else wants. And while his robots may not be able to clean your house, wash you car, or play minion to your evil genius, they can, however, light up.

Tal says,

I pay cash for junk that nobody else wants…old tools, scientific equipment, vintage kitchen appliances, vacuum cleaners, floor polishers, marine and auto salvage, etc… and turn them into robot night lights.

Jellitsch_Galerie3_BA_Kunstpreis_Detail

These brilliant illustrations may look as though they were created using computer programs, but they were all hand drawn by Peter Jellitsch, an artist based in Vienna, Austria.

Jellitsch’s art is the stunning confluence of art and scientific phenomena. He is able to bring his interpretation of complex scientific information from the virtual world into the real world, using pencil and paper as an interface. He describes this painstakingly difficult process as an “analog translation of digital data.”

Jellitsch says,

I am not concerned about representing what I have seen with my drawings, I rather deal with a parallel world which represents an analogy to reality for me. The method of my artistic analysis is the analogy, and my interest lies in creating a dialogue between virtual processes and the real physical space. With this method, I can elaborate details I believe to be important.

Peter Jellitsch’s works will be exhibited at “Field Conditions,” an upcoming art exhibition at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, from September 01, 2012 to  January 06, 2013.
