Art by Sarcoptiform 

I don’t know anything about this artist. There isn’t much in the way of information on either their Flickr page nor their tumbler site.  I do know, however, that if Robert Crumb had done botanical illustration, it’d look a lot like this.  Organic, textural, creepy, and utterly believable.  Like a drippy, misshapen candle that’s been sitting out all day at a yard sale, you know what it’s made of and why it looks so wonky, yet you still want to pick it up and roll it over in your hand and read it’s alien surface.

 A 110 million-year-old fossil of Cleoniceras ammonite, found in Madagascar. Ammonites are extinct cephalopods that lived in shells. Their closest modern relatives are nautiluses, octopi, squid, and cuttlefish. Like the nautilus, ammonites gradually added onto their shell to accommodate their increasing body mass. As they extended the shell they built a wall behind them, closing up the now too-narrow portion of the shell as they moved into the larger portion of the spiral.

Unlike the nautilus, the morphology of the tissue wall ammonites built between the chambers is not just a smooth curved wall. Instead it has a bizarrely complex 3-dimensional fractal shape. These are called “suture patterns” and mark the intersection of the septum walls with the shell. Scientists can’t agree why these walls are so complexly furrowed or even how they formed.

Karina Smigla-Bobinski,  ‘Ada’, a large helium filled ball covered in charcoal nubs. The piece floats gently in space until interacted with by viewers, who can toss the ball against the walls, creating scratchy drawings on the surface of the gallery space. During the course of the exhibition, the walls  evolve into a dense collection of scribbles.
