Annie Heckman is an artist based in Chicago, Illinois. Her work explores mortality and afterlife ideologies through sculptural animation installations and works on paper. In a recent post on her blog she writes of her joy upon receiving her laser cut paper bones for her sculpture in progress “You thought that you were alone but I caught your bullet just in time”
It is always interesting to see the way artists approach and apply materials and technologies of manufacture. With utility and function taken out of the design equation, artists such as Heckmann can help inspire us with new ways of approaching materials and processes, while at the same time guiding us to ponder our inevitable mortality.
