Steampunk Clock Art By Sue Beatrice Steampunk is a term that is used to describe a specific style of art, jewelry or fashion. Its name is derived from the steam engines that are showcased in old science fiction movies. Many steampunk art pieces feature a Victorian style that utilizes both form and function.

Ephemeral Portraits Cut from Layers of Wire Mesh by Seung Mo Park Using a process that could be the new definition of meticulous, Korean sculptor Seung Mo Park creates giant ephemeral portraits by cutting layer after layer of wire mesh. Each work begins with a photograph which is superimposed over layers of wire with a projector, then using a subtractive technique Park slowly snips away areas of mesh.

Park just exhibited this month at Blank Space Gallery in New York as part of his latest series Maya (meaning “illusion” in Sanskrit). You can see much more at West Collects.
