Mark Mothersbaugh, composer, singer, and founding member of the new wave band DEVO, will display his "Beautiful Mutants" collection of photographs at the Los Angeles Center For Digital Art. Mothersbaugh describes his very unusual photographs as follows:

"The photographs in this show were corrected in order to examine those who have walked the planet before us. Theoretically symmetrical in generalities, the subtle potato-like qualities of the human form allow the tenants of these bodies to hide within their asymmetric muddiness.

These corrected photographic images allow the true tenant of these human faces and figures to be ‘flushed-out’ and viewed without the disguise that we all so expertly hide behind."

The exhibit runs from November 6 through December 6, 2008. There will be an opening reception on Thursday, November 6, from 7-9pm.
