Jizai Okimono is a niche Japanese craft dating back to the late 1700s when metalsmiths found themselves with a lot of time on their hands as the demand for multi-plate armour waned. It involves the meticulous carving of hyperrealistic animals with fully articulating, anatomically correct joints.

Here, 25 year-old sculptor Ryosuke Ohtake carves a lobster from boxwood for an exhibition at Tokyu Department Store – a feat made all the more impressive by the fact that it was apparently his first attempt at the craft.

New York based artist Danny Rozin makes interactive art in the literal sense.

Some of his best known works are actuated ‘mirror sculptures’ which track the silhouettes of viewers via video sensors, translating them into real time kinetic reflections.
