I meant to blog this a while ago, but you know, that other world intruded.
I took a quick trip to Lunamaruna last week. Lunamaruna is Scottius Polke’s amazing creation of twisted towers and strangely glowing fish — a little bit Dr. Seuss, a little bit Van Gogh, a little bit H. P. Lovecraft. It’s both cheerful and creepy, and I was completely enthralled by it.
The build mixes two dimensional textures with three dimensional objects, marrying cartoonish buildings with fanciful fish and half-hidden skeletons. Seriously, it’s brilliant.
