Degenerative Sculptures by Tim Silver

September 18, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Sydney-based artist Tim Silver creates these striking figures that appear to gradually disintegrate over time. I’m not sure if the process takes minutes or days and I wonder if it requires external intervention like the application of heat or water, but regardless the photos are amazing if not a bit haunting. He’s also applied the same technique to objects like bottles and cassette tapes, and in a piece entitled Untitled (Killing me Softly) a human figure’s sandy skin is gradually stripped by ocean waves.
