New York Biotopes

I don’t know if I’m on some type of drugs or what, but I think I might be hallucinating. Wow! This is one of the best/craziest things I’ve ever seen. Lena Steinkühler, a student from Germany, has this to say about the amazing piece she created:

My bachelor graduation project, “New York Biotopes,” deals with abstract plants and creatures, which change their forms because of insufficient living space and adapt themselves to the surroundings of the metropolis New York City. It’s a type of metamorphosis, where the newly developed vegetation assimilates elements of the city and makes them useful for their own purposes. These creatures and plants, partly mechanical, partly organically in appearance, spread more and more over the city and fill it up with life.
