Fan Xiaoyan is a 27-year old Chinese artist who creates some of the creepiest shit my eyes have ever had the unfortunate displeasure of witnessing. They basically combine the horror of chrome-plated Decepticons with the frightfulness of nude mannequins. What? The female form makes me squeamish!
Of her work, Fan says it represents "the arrival of a new era, a new kind of human being, a new power, a new senÂsaÂtion... a surÂreÂalÂisÂtic virÂtual world in which men and women are equal." That is a nice thought, but I prefer to interpret them as literal predictions of how humans could look in the future.
A "surrealistic virtual world in which men and women are equal?" Um, last time I checked I didn't have tank treads or a crossbow leg. I'm pretty sure that would put me at a distinct disadvantage. "But GW -- what about your laser peen?" GAAAAAH -- YOU JUST GAVE AWAY MY SECRET WEAPON!
Hit the jump for four more, equally disturbing pieces of 'burn it with fire'.
