Linette and I recently saw this guy’s work at the MASS MoCA, and were completely blown away by it. Click the first link if you have any doubt. It’s incredible stuff. I’ve been trying for the past few weeks to put it into words, and, finally, just now, I decided to give up. So, just follow the link. It’s really beautiful the way he literally breathes life into these giant lumbering creatures of his.

    You do know that these things will eventually turn on their master, right?

    Have Sigfreid and Roy taught us nothing?

    I predict that within ten years we’ll see footage of them using their tiny feet to methodically strip away his flesh.

    Eh. Megasaurus for the alternative energy crowd.

    Not that I believe in evolution, but is the Megasaurus somehow related to the Truckasauri that roamed the earth during my adolescence?
