Mechxhibition 03 / Artworks / 2018 / Dk
In 2018 the Mechxhibition [mech + exhibition] aimed to showcase talented local and international artists within Vejle (Denmark) area community specifically mech/sci-fi lovers, kit-bashers and artists that are utilizing up-cycling as a medium of expression.

Inside the Boiler House were displayed pieces curated by Mani Zamani and Costin George Benescu under the themes of Futurism, Dystopia and Utopia. Several art jams and guided tours were held at Spinderihallerne during the month of April 2018 as part of the project.

Do you ever run out of kits when kitbashing? How about glue or paint? 
What if you never run out of anything? 
What could you create kitbashing in Virtual Reality?
Try playing around with Oculus Medium and see what you can come up with!
ALBINO BORG

They found him in a drifting wreckage. High command was really interested in that thing.Was it an outcast? 
Did they banish him based on his appearance? It did not seem to matter, he is a valuable resource now. 
We could learn a lot from it. Maybe enough to end this senseless war...

SABER FALCON 119
The planet Tallos 119 is known for its imperium crystals which are the most powerful source of energy found to date.
However, the raw power has attracted energy consuming monsters from the darkest corners of the galaxy. They tear
through entire cities just to get to the crystals. Massive in size and impenetrable by modern weaponry, many Tallosians
have been lost to their hunger. But all hope is not lost. A team of paleontologists recently discovered an ancient mecha
armor suit equipped with an imperium blade able to penetrate the beast's scales. One brave soldier now pilots the suit
and the hope of all Tallosians goes with her.

BATTLE ARENA
Ancient colossal beings made of rock and metal are brought to life by an otherworldly lifeforce. These giants roam the
land with an unknown purpose. Some graze and wander passively, some are immovable, remaining in place for
decades; but many are malevolent and destructive.
In the kingdom of Arkas, people have made coexisting with these giants into a bloodsport.

This project is partly something from a dream I had, and partly just pure enjoyment of the giant mech and colossus
genre. I was heavily inspired by the scale and mood of Shadow of the Colossus and Attack on Titan.

BELL_47 "CHOCTAW"
Mechs have been one of my favourite sci-fi ingredients and it’s interesting how the human mech shape stays popular
even once it’s moved to the foreign conditions of space. It all depends on how we imagine those conditions and their effects. 
To me, this decides how abstract a design becomes.
When I started I wanted to take apart a Bell 47 (MASH) helicopter and turn it into a mech that looks
like it could fulfill the same tasks; scouting and maybe a bit of harassing.
I used airplane models, LEGO pieces, mechanical electronic bits and other toy pieces.
