Phenotype (Sculpture By The Sea 21)

Phenotype by Tim Weatherell (ACT). Made of rusted iron and resin.

Weatherell says: "My work explores people's differing perceptions of reality with special reference to technology and the changes it brings."

Wikipedia tells us this about phenotype: "A phenotype is any observable characteristic or trait of an organism: such as its morphology, development, biochemical or physiological properties, or behavior. Phenotypes result from the expression of an organism's genes as well as the influence of environmental factors and possible interactions between the two.". More.

  1. Sally, I just LOVE these weird and wonderful things. Your whole series is just splendid. They remind me of a 1900s version of the future -- like something HG Wells would imagine.

    Lovely shot!

  2. These look like friends and companions of ET!!

  3. My first reaction isn't too far off the artist's title then: I thought it looked like a family of funny-looking aliens. :D

  4. So cool!!! I really like those funny 'fellows'! :-)

  5. A bit strange this one, but I LOVED the wave of a couple of days ago, especially the top shot with the sea in the background.

  6. 1950's sci fi films. They are just so cool and a great photography subject.
