Toronto based artist Philip Beesley is quite literally using his art to create life. His “living sculpture” called “Hylozoic Soil”, which won first prize at the VIDA awards, is seriously awesome in more ways than initially meets the eye. Based off of the theory of Hylozoism stating that all matter is connected to life, the piece is built with small, transparent acrylic tiles run by a sensor network that causes the tiles to move if they are touched as if they were actually a living, breathing object. Beesley apparently based the work off of his studies of coral reefs. So as people are walking through the forrest, the sculpture is actually changing its form according to their actions. A very cool way of showing a juxtaposition between natural and artificial creation.
