SAIC (School of the Art Institute of Chicago), 2013, BFA


Ellis von Sternberg’s work amplifies imagery of anime icons, the sleek predatory design of jet airplanes and the fictional universes of modern sci-fi. The motifs he utilizes are intended to produce their own cult following; they are objects that demand an introverted and avid commitment. They are ornate and sexual — synthetic idols standing at the intersection of humanity, religion and technology.

Work produced through digital production, von Sternberg’s work is created using CAD design and 3D printing. Printed in plastics and finished using enamels, the sculptures have a candy-car paint idolatry.
