Alex CF is a self described, “professional cryptozoological pseudo-scientific assemblage artist and illustrator”. The Brit painstakingly engineers self contained art projects that simulate the found evidence of fringe researchers from an era gone. Each work is a narrative of both the researcher and creature, telling a complete story with a bewitching level of detail. Or, put more directly, they’re fucking mind blowing and I want one in the worst way.
His latest work is the Henrich Emile Rectangle, an unearthed cube with a tunnel inside it larger than the exterior that also has an effect on the humans around it, causing cavernous spirals to form within their bodies. I’ve never seen anything like it. The only thing holding me back is the price; 900 pounds. I honestly would pay 900 dollars for one of his creations, but considering England’s crushing currency is doing to the American dollar what Luke did to Jabba’s rancor, well, there is no way I can justify spending $2,000 on something just because it will make me happy all over.
Maybe you’ve got more coin than I, though. If so, head on over and check out his works. He’s got everything from Death’s Coffer to Cthulhu Specimen Boxes. Or, if like me, you can’t afford one, just go over and punish your eyes with all the glory you’ll never have.
Oh, and this gives me another thing I would do with a time machine. Just imagine what would happen to ‘ole H.P. if you travelled back in time and left a Mountains of Madness Expedition Case on his doorstep. I think I just came up with my next script…
