Brooklyn artist Graham Caldwell explores the concept of visual perception and the way we perceive and distort the world around us by creating multi-faceted surfaces that crumple and distort vision using steel, mirrors, blown glass, epoxy, and a myriad of other materials. His works evoke the idea that human sight is intrinsically elastic – our own psychological differences play a part in the construction of what we perceive and understand our surroundings. His exploration also delves into the past, to encompass and include the connection between vision and glass – how the eye peers through windows, lenses, and mirrors, and how we translate that into experience.

Much of my work focuses on glass as a conduit or modulating agent for light and its parallel in the functionality of the human eye: using a lens to flip an image of the world, upside down and backwards, into the brain where it is reassembled, through illusion and forensics.

ImageBased in London, Jonty Hurwitz is one part artist, one part scientist. His incredible anamorphic sculptures have been gaining popularity due to their impressively creative nature – they can only be viewed via their own reflections. Using cylindrical mirrors, Hurwitz creates each piece by scanning a three-dimensional object and working with it in a special kind of computer software in order to manipulate it’s physical shape. “Finding that line between art and science is the underlying motivator in my art life,” says Jonty. “At heart I’m an artist scientist archetype that loves projects and people. Each of the art works and ventures on this site represent a part of what I am.”
