“Psychogeographies” by Dustin Yellin

View all 7 Photos

“Psychogeographies” is a term for intuitively exploring cities and, now, a series of 3D collages by Brooklyn-based artist Dustin Yellin. The collages layer magazine clippings and acrylic paint on several sheets of glass, forming a 3D and life-sized abstraction of the human form. Standing six feet tall, the finished blocks of glass look like tanks for fictional science experiments. The human figures seem trapped inside, and one presses its hands against the glass. Made up of thousands of colorful scraps, the figures represent human anatomy with parts missing, ruptured, or disconnected. Altogether sinuous and strange, the “Psychogeographies” have the appearance of a culturally-charged, nth layer to the body.
