    Default The Bizarre Steampunk Taxidermy of Lisa Black

    Well this is a touch bizarre. To make her art, Australian-born Lisa Black combines the medical practice of taxidermy with the aesthetics of steampunk. It’s a rather unusual combination and it’s really amazing to see these broken, taxidermied animals whose missing parts have been replaced with little gears and screws, like the innards of a vintage clock.

    In her interview with YouBentMyWookie, Black explains her motivation behind her art pieces – she believes in transhumanism which is a movement that believes in the use of modern technology to improve human mental and physical characteristics. Black tries to applies those ideologies to her animal creations.

    In situations like these, I think pictures do tell a thousand words.

    Have you watched Shane Acker's "9"? Her caracal reminds me of the nasty creatures in the movie.
