This was sent to me by my fellow Twitterer @Medusa_RANTz…

Ever wonder what might result from the crossing of human with other…things, like spiders, dogs, birds and frogs?

Artist Brian Andrews has produced a really neat and possibly very disturbing set of stills and animation made from veterinary and pediatric x-ray photos.

With the title of Hominid, these cool images are put together using Photoshop, assembled from the original images that make them up, with attention paid to anatomical details such as how the blended parts fit together, cohering into a single incredibly creepy organism.

Brian had the following to say, according to this article:

‘The original photo-composites were developed with the intent of creating an artwork that would make the audience feel a personal and uncanny connection to the image in front of them.

‘Each photo needed to contain a sensation of humanity which someone could intimately relate to, yet also provoke something unsettling and alien.

‘Fusing human and animal anatomies is not a new idea – almost every mythology has hybrid creatures.

‘By using X-rays as source material I was able to make the images contemporary in their form, as well as directly challenge the viewer by taking them inside their own bodies.’

I must admit, as fantastic as these are, it’s not quite what I’m used to thinking about when the word “human” crosses my mind…
Brrrr!
Check out the cool teaser animation below!

  1. Both the video and the images were amazing. The artist here really has a lot of technical talent, but also a keen artistic sensibility. Thank you so much for sharing this, Troy and Medusa.
