When we see ordinary object for what they are and how they look, software engineer Eric Geusz, going by the Instagram name Spacegooose, observes them as spaceships. As his Instagram bio says “Software Engineer by day, Artist by night,” this artist’s imagination is able to transform any random object on an incredible starship.
“I am a huge sci-fi fan and space nerd. I was inspired by Star Wars originally. The model builders in the 70’s used a process called Kit-bashing to create the details on their spaceships. They would take parts from other model kits like planes and boats and glue them together into new shapes. I also love legos and used to play with them all the time as a kid,” shared Eric when reached out by Earthwonders.
“Often if I’m stuck or have artists block I try to look for cool shapes in other places.
In class I’d be board outta my mind and suddenly my pink eraser was a landing shuttle from Star Trek and the imaginary crew would start exploring my desk. It’s also fun to transpose the meaning of an object into a new context. It forces you to look at the world in different perspectives,” added the artist.
