At first glance the work of Melbourne-based artist Justine Khamara looks like it was digitally manipulated. Justine actually hand-cuts the photographs and rearranges and collages them. Seeking to disrupt photography's smooth, two-dimensional surfaces, she collages and builds sculptures entirely out of photographs.

When we saw these at a glance we thought we were looking at some moleskin sketchbook illustrations. As soon as we took a closer look we realized that they were made from skin and hair! This is not the first time we have posted the work of Australian artist Patricia Piccinini. Her startlingly lifelike and equally bizarre sculptures had us feeling just as uncomfortable a few months ago. We also loved her incredible "Sky Whale" hot air balloon!

As part of an installation at the Auckland War Memorial Museum, Brooklyn-based artist Robert Hodgin recently was contracted to animate and render a feeding frenzy of fish for the interactive Moana - My Ocean exhibit. The phenomenon, called a "boil up" is an amazing twisting, spinning, hectic mass of predators and pray feeding on each other and plankton. The installation will surround visitors in the "boil up" as the schools of fish swarm about them. Awesome.
