Eric Vandamme is a multidisciplinary artist. For his visual works he makes an artistic investigation into the morphological aspects of the living and non-living nature. He draws on materials from various scientific domains. Some works result from images he recorded during dissections at the Antwerp University.
Vandamme – the Human Scanner – manipulates these images with photo editing programmes on the computer. He changes the cut-out and relationships, increases the detail, distorts images, fuses elements from different sources and customises colours.
The resulting mutant and hybrid images serve as a basis for the drawings, paintings and videos. The result is a fascinating new world, one can describe as a strange scaleless cosmos.
