Ernesto Neto's Bouncy White Humanoid Blobs

Illustration for article titled Ernesto Netos Bouncy White Humanoid Blobs

Brazilian artist Ernesto Neto likes soft, blobby, stretchy membrane-like things. He likes to hang them from walls, slather them across the floors, and wrap human beings in them. He uses materials like nylon and cotton for maximum softness, and sometimes even fills them with aromatic spices. People love going to see his exhibits because they somehow manage to fill observers with the warm fuzzies and creep them out at the same time.
