Vasen-Mangabot-Mashups

Brendan Lee Satish Tang macht Mashup-Keramik, in der er klassische chinesische Vasen mit Robotern aus Mangas und Animes mischt. Ich habe irgendwie was gegen Vasen, alleine das Wort klingt schon superkomisch: Vasen… seltsam. Aber das hier ist dann doch ziemlich fantastisch.

Manga Ormolu enters the dialogue on contemporary culture, technology, and globalization through a fabricated relationship between ceramic tradition (using the form of Chinese Ming dynasty vessels) and techno-Pop Art. The futuristic update of the Ming vessels in this series recalls 18th century French gilded ormolu, where historic Chinese vessels were transformed into curiosity pieces for aristocrats. But here, robotic prosthetics inspired by anime (Japanese animation) and manga (the beloved comics and picture novels of Japan) subvert elitism with the accessibility of popular culture.
