Alex McLeod makes candy-colored digital landscapes fit for a Princess Peach. Now he’s experimenting with thought-controlled computing to make clouds bounce on the screen by blinking your eye.
Over the past year, we’ve seen paintings that look like photographs and photographs that look like paintings. Now, Canadian artist Alex McLeod is making 3-D dioramas that look like landscape photography--if the landscapes were a candy fantasy land where architecture doesn’t bend to natural laws of physics, earth-like substances sprout in unconventional ways, and inflatable sculptures that look like croissants hover in the sky.
