Some sculptors carve their artwork into stone, some into clay, but artist Jonty Hurwitz materialises his warped ideas into perspex, steel, copper and resin. These anamorphic sculptors rely on scans of objects like hands, faces and frogs that are then distorted digitally and fabricated. When placed in front of a cylindrical mirror, the reflection reveals the original object. As Jonty is really a scientist at heart, he explains that his artwork is his way of “expressing calculations visually,” and also a way to experiment with innovative manufacturing and fabrication technologies.
