Bart Hess


Hunt for Hightech

With a "Hunt for Hightech" Bart Hess made a collection of fake fur that touches on elements of fetishism, human instinct and new animal archetypes.

With that collection he did not try to mimic real animal kingdoms but create a fantasy world of his own. The way this started was through the process of imagining fantasy animals; animals that could be genetically manipulated, part robot, part organic, how they would move in their environment and what they felt like to touch. Bart then took his (imagined) gun and ‘hunted’ them, looking for their extra ordinary, high tech furs. He thought about tactile qualities like reflection, the way the hair grows and three dimensionality and took these characteristics, magnified them, manipulated and exaggerated them. taken for artist site
