Art and creativity inspired by Anatomy and Science
Ben Cuevas is an artist who creates some impressive knitted anatomical pieces for his installations;
‘I enjoy the rich cultural and social history that surrounds fiber arts, as well as blending the distinctions between art and craft. The time intensive and repetitive nature of knitting allows me to meditate on a piece as it comes into being, further revealing the nature of the work as part of the process.’
I’m far too impatient to knit, so I can’t help but be in awe of how he worked out how to knit vertebrae!
Above is his piece from ‘Trancending the Material‘, and below is a medley from his ‘Anatomical Knit Hood Series’, Intestines and Heart.
