Gorgeous laser-cut cosmic objects: HYBYCOZO, the Hyperspace Bypass Construction Zone


The Hyperspace Bypass Construction Zone is a series of "sublime, laser cut cosmic objects, ranging from a Burning Man art installation to design pieces for the home."


Cross Connect Tumblr has a good overview of the project, by two San Francisco artists: Serge Beaulieu and Yelena Filipchuk.


Yelena and Serge tell Boing Boing that what started as their Burning Man project has now totally transformed their lives. "We are actually shipping a limited run of our designs as lights right now, and if you like them you can use COZOEXISTSBECAUSEOFYOU15 to get 15% off."

More about the origins, from the project website:

The patterns represents the many ways, people, over thousands of years, have derived meaning and connection from geometry and natural wonder on both the molecular and spiritual level, and shared it with each other through the arts.

In your mind the Universe still divided into two parts – the Earth, and everything else. The Earth having been demolished already in the futurepast to make way for a hyperspace bypass means that your view of things is a little lopsided. I am hopeful that this installation will alleviate some of this lopsidedness.

Much like the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, these sculptures are meant to provide a map and a definitive set of instructions for interacting with a reality as subjective as plans to destroy the earth to build a hyperspace bypass may seem. We hope each Hyperspace Bypass Construction Zone will amaze and inspire all beings that it comes into contact with it.
