About Daniil Alikov
Daniil Alikov is an artist working with digital and traditional media. His scope of interest and his metaphysical research is mostly about intrinsic but not obvious human-to-machine relation. As it seems in parent-to-child comparison, in the same way industrial design derives from its creator, human. As an artist who denies the fact that anything he does is somehow similar to himself, the humanity subconsciously creates all technology referencing from our bodies, from nature around us or from our basic conceptions of beauty. Some time ago in his 3D digital artworks Daniil created bio-mechanical designs of animal robots and now his research on the theme is much deeper and mature. Modern human might be over-stressed about his surroundings made of steel and glass where computers and heavy duty machines are everywhere. And yes, it's easy to loose yourself in crazy galloping progress. Alikov's art aims to provide a conceptual and visual evidence of our immanent connection to everything we created and therefore shouldn't be alienated from.
