[ISEA96] Artist Statement: Ian Haig – Mighty Morphing Muscle Men

Artist Statement

The body is being enhanced, modified and upgraded. These hypermuscled morphing bods also represent the body in a state of impending collapse. The body pushed to the limit, with no place left to go. Mighty Morphing Muscle Men seek to heighten and satirise the body: Somewhere between the masculine fantasy of the super, maxi, power, bodies in computer games (like Virtual Fighter) and the underlying macho power base which seems inherent in so much 3D computer graphic aesthetics, iconography and advertising.
