Monstrous, Futuristic 'Creatures' by German Artist Matthias Männer

German artist Matthias Männer's angular, geometric installations are born of the refuse of the technological landscape. Using both hard lines and sinewy bundles of cables, Männer's sculptures evoke strange deep sea creatures from a dystopian future. His works embody the tension between both our organic and manufactured worlds -- at once malevolent in their scale and graceful in their form, his sculpture imagines a world in which the natural and cyborg battle, ultimately to become fused as one.

But, beyond that analysis, we also think these pieces are plain wicked cool. Who wouldn't want a design-y, massive tech-monster for their art collection? We'll see if we can get one for the Switched offices.

If you're in Munich next week, be sure to check out Männer's exhibition "ME.MACHINE," opening on November 5th at Dina 4 Projekte. [From: Yatzer, via FastCompany]
