In today’s fraught world, we all could use some powerful art to get our minds off our worries.

In her  Blown Away series, British artist Penny Hardy constructs life-size metal sculptures made from discarded machinery that’s based on the human body, each one exploring an emotion or experience.

The Devon-based artist says, “By using discarded man-made metal items—which have been so skillfully made and used to create their own mechanical energy—I hope to extend their life in another form, re-use that energy for a different purpose, and exchange their function to create a new entity.”
