Toby Ziegler is a London-based artist, whose work I recently saw in Museum of Contemporary art Kiasma. The show was called The Alienation of Objects and ,quite frankly, I think he's brilliant. The man takes his inspiration from books and pictures of historical works of art, and creates form of his own work on the computer, from which he makes the models in paper. After all that he makes the actual aluminum sculptures. But the brilliant part is that he takes historical art works, that have been destroyed or gotten lost, works that only exist now on photographs, and gives them a so called second life, by reworking them completely, mostly by simplifying the form and reducing the information.
