Expandable Slinky Art

Li Hongbo - Pure White Paper from Dominik Mersch Gallery on Vimeo.

The artwork changes its composition entirely by expanding when interacted with. Li Hongbo's general theme of the project is life and death and features a lot of skeletal and mummified figures.

The artwork is extremely intricate and is visually captivating when expanded and shrunk back. The difference within the composition is incredible to see in an almost cinematic way. It is morbid, ghostly and alluring. Li Hongbo's accordion-like technique of sculpturing is admirable for its perfection and the detailing involved.
