Biography

Mariano Giraud’s sculptures of sea and land animals, insects, human body parts, and other biomorphic forms meld nature and technology. Giraud begins his process by shaping forms with sculpting software on the computer. He then frequently alters his subjects’ appearances to make them look computer-generated, rendering a cat or an octopus as a conglomeration of geometrical shapes or turning out intestinal piles in bright green and orange. Some of his works are more naturalistic, such as one sculpture of an isolated oversize hand. Once he completes his modeling, he prints his objects using a 3-D printer. For Giraud, his manner of production mimics biological processes in which various parts come together and gradually morph into a larger, more complex whole.
