Now on display at Habatat Galleries in West Palm Beach, FL is "Weapons of Peace," an exhibition by Robert Mickelsen. "As long as humans have been on the planet, they have made weapons. And as long as humans have made weapons, they have made art. Human weapons have always had an element of art in them. The question is why? Why make an object designed to kill beautiful? I believe it says something profound about what it means to be human.

Korean artist U-Ram Choe creates extraordinary kinetic sculptures, "charting a path between art, science and cybernetic technologies. Finely engineered stainless steel, aluminium, and acrylic 'bones' provide the skeletal scaffolding for the 'brains and muscles' - CPUs and motors - which are assembled into captivating forms reminiscent of otherworldly flora and fauna. Taking his vision and art into a virtual realm he frequently identifies and categorises his sculptures with a fabricated narrative of species and habitat, inviting the audience to imagine the evolution of life forms into the future."

Stuck in the countryside of a cold Russian wilderness, a symbol of isolated/invisible power and stature, Timofey Radya is the creator of Figure #1: Stability. As Radya notes in his own description of the piece, "After the formation officers may leave the area." From what we gather, and from Radya's video, the piece is a construction of lonely power, a sort of comedic tragedy of how power is constructed when nobody is paying attention. Love the red carpet treatment.

Kogler has been interested in new, innovative art practices, not only in the field of visual, but also in performative arts, sound and music.

Johan Scherft started making papercraft birds at the age of 14. His first birds were modeled after English artist Malcolm Topp and made using a colored pencil. Now 30 years later, the Dutch artist uses a computer to aid in initial blueprints and completes the rest of the painstaking process by hand.
