After months of planning and research, a new project is about to get underway that is both a living art exhibit and a journey into the very limits of body modification. I’ve known about this for a little while, but I had been asked to keep quiet until the time was right. Well, today is the day.
The artist behind this project has asked to remain anonymous for now, but he/she has been featured on ModBlog several times before. This project is the culmination of many years of hard work. That project? The Arnie Composition.
The focus of the project is to take fictional modification/mutations found in various Arnold Schwarzenegger films and make them a reality. This is where you come in. The artist is looking for volunteers to take part in this radical art showcase. In order to take part you must be 21 or older, and have some experience with surgical modifications (i.e. implants, etc), and be willing to travel to Montreal.
So what modifications are planned? Well I don’t have the final list, but I can provide some examples. We recently saw in the news a professor who used transdermal anchors to stick a camera into the back of his head. The implants eventually had to be removed as the camera weighed too much. For “The Arnie Composition” the artist is looking for someone who is up to the challenge of becoming The Predator. If you recall, in the film Predator, the alien had a digital device attached to his arm. For the project the artist has crafted a compact and lightweight version that will attach to the arm via magnetic transdermals.
In addition to the arm plate, he is also looking to use multiple skull transdermal implants to attach dreadlocks similar to the predator’s.
Next up is the Terminator portion of the exhibit. Using a combination of scarification, branding, and LED implants, the goal is to recreate the iconic look of The Terminator.
Finally, in the most radical modification of the collection, the Total Recall. Total Recall is famous for a number of things, but probably the most iconic image is that of Mary, the prostitute. One lucky woman will have the opportunity to be the centerpiece of the exhibit by transforming into Mary.
There are many more procedures planned, including a radical tattoo and scar piece reminiscent of Mr. Freeze.
If you have any questions regarding this exhibit, feel free to get in contact with me as I’ll be passing the requests along to the artist. In the mean time, take a look through the galleries to see what what the many talented artists that submit their images to BME are capable of, and start watching those Arnie movies to get a better idea of what to expect from The Arnie Composition.
