Out of Place: Bizarre Manipulations Around Town

Thursday 10.11.2012 , Posted by

There’s always a bit of humor in the work of Robert Rickhoff. What at first seems like normal, even mundane pictures of the world, turn out to be fun juxtapositions of everyday objects – objects he’s digitally moved to places highly impractical for actual use. Urinals hang suspended on toilet walls, only accessible by a climbing wall; suburban streets are built with high speed jumps; and a volleyball court is placed in the center of a divided highway.

Thursday 07.26.2012 , Posted by

Architecture, by its very nature, is grounded. Not so the strange flying buildings of Paris based artist Laurent Chehere. His series Flying Houses sees the rectangular structures take off, leaving their terrestrial domain to soar in the clouded skies above. The photo-manipulated images serve to feed Chehere’s interest in architecture, lifting it off its normal realm and showing off its hidden beauty. His work cuts away all the normal clutter, removes the anonymity of a normal house so that we can appreciate it as an individual unit. [Read more...]
