Pressure 1.0 by David Mesguich, an artist based in Brussels, Belgium, is a visually striking sculpture that takes on the form of a giant geometric head. After reinterpreting the human skull, this project seems like the logical next step. Fleshing out this particular form, if not the features, it retains a pixelated appearance that allows people to read into what they will.

Yet Pressure 1.0 by David Mesguich does impart a specific message. The creator writes, "It's the story of people who are on the fence, inbetween worlds, those who are both on the inside and on the outside." He then goes on to reveal, "My inspiration came from two sources: a family history that steeped me in a violent, carceral universe during my youth and more than 10 years of trespassing with graffiti."
