Just in time for the new year, House of Vans London is launching an out-of-this-world exhibition by London-based illustrator, designer, sculptor, and model-maker Jethro Haynes. Celestial Anomalies: An exhibition of Photography & 3D Model Making Work presents Jethro’s experimental exploration with data as both an artistic tool and as a means to understand the galactic objects of the universe.
Using data obtained from a mysterious apparatus fished out of the Atlantic Ocean over forty years ago, the artist combines innovative 3D modeling with traditional photography to “investigate a possible facet of future explorations into our universe and beyond”. Having utilized new, non-invasive technologies to recover the probe’s once inaccessible data, Jethro’s Celestial Anomalies project –including both the artistic process and the finished work itself – is unmistakably modern and undeniably original.
Celestial Anomalies: An exhibition of Photography & 3D Model Making Work will be up and running at House of Vans London beginning 15 January, with a very special preview event at 7 pm featuring the artist and a screening of the 1974 sci-fi film, 'Dark Star' to kick off the exhibition. Don’t miss this exciting event!
