Simply Unhuman

The demand for UX Designers will only increase as we become increasingly connected to digital media and services.


The human body is a wonderful thing. Duh! But trying to explain it through art and design may be even more wonderful. This fragment of an Italian pamphlet I found in a stack of ephemera reminds me of film “The Shape of Water.” Making the human form un-human yet human at the same time is magical. I have very little to say about this artifact. It is two sides of the same flyer. There may be more to it. It may have been cut or torn, but it is just such a beautiful piece, the classic physiognomy versus the symbolic. Classic muscular anatomy versus Fritz Kahn’s “Man as Industrial Palace” depiction together shows how the the parts we often take for granted are exceptionally depicted through the eyes and mind.
