The combination of two cultural beliefs in one
Garret Kane is an assemblage sculpture who is currently based in Brooklyn, NY. The artist uses natural materials for his works and believes that human beings were originally created by the Mother Nature. Besides that, he uses modern technologies to give his sculptures colossal looks. His previous works go under the title of “Seasons” and are basically devoted to the cycles that Earth goes through during a year. Beautiful works, but it is his latest sculpture is truly breathtaking.garretkane.com
Garret gave preference to such natural materials as branches and moss, added a technological touch and as a result, a 7-foot tall figure is standing just in front of you.garretkane.com
The idea of such tree-like human was inspired by two cultures where people believe in so-called Protectors.
Golem is a Judaic protector, made of sticks and mud, while Mecha comes from the Japanese culture and is built from advanced robotics. That’s how Garret came to the idea of combing truly natural protector with technological details, resulting in Golemecha. The protector possesses the powers of both – nature and modern technologies. The figure has a symbolic meaning: it is protecting our innocent, pure nature from modern technologies that keep affecting nature and actually threaten is.garretkane.com
