The things Albert Omoss can do with a computer are pretty damn impressive, creating 4D renders that look at once naturalistic and totally alien. His vast levels of skill with design software are the product of a life-long love of the digital world: he claims to have “ began programming computers in QBasic when he was eight years old.”
Working on a mixture of client projects and self-initiated experiments, Instagram has proved the perfect platform for Albert to show off his weird and wonderful creations. Many works focus on ideas of human progress in relation to technology, and his strange architectures are peopled with simulated crowds and bodies that make for something altogether rather dystopian.
Albert says his works “often explore the fragility of the human form, the aesthetic complexity of physical processes, and the relationship between organisms and advanced technologies.” An Instagram user, meanwhile, took a more prosaic approach to defining his creations, simply asking, “is that a butthole?”
