Isabelle Wenzel’s Manipulations Of The Human Body

Dutch photographer Isabelle Wenzel’s playful photographs bend, twist and manipulate the human form into new and unknown positions. Whether it’s tackling the idea of the artist as artifact or manipulating the minimal and mundane motions of office workers Wenzel pushes the envelope of how we see the human form and how simple juxtapositions and movements can completely transform the most familiar image into the unknown.  (via)

Renaud Marion’s Floating Cars Of The Future

Hover boards are still not a reality and cars don’t fly in space. We all know this. However reality didn’t stop Michael J. Fox from skating in the sky and it sure as hell didn’t stop French photographer Renaud Marion from creating this extremely well executed series of classic cars that have been turned into sleek floating vehicles of the future. Marion kept all the best elements of the classic rides sans the wheels to create cars that even the Jetsons would be proud to ride in. (via)

Holly Andres Photographs Inspired By Nancy Drew Books And Alfred Hitchcock

Holly Andres series Sparrow Lane presents an elliptical narrative of young women on the verge of adulthood. Drawing on the formal and thematic conventions of Nancy Drew books, 1970s horror films and Alfred Hitchcock, the series depicts girls in search of forbidden knowledge. By employing suggestive and symbolic iconography such as chrome flashlights, skeleton keys, mirrors, birdcages and open drawers, literal narratives are suspended to suggest psycho-sexual metaphors. The Sparrow Lane protagonists are propelled by curiosity, empowered by their discoveries, and are also intimidated by a sense of impending threat. While the girls flirt with danger, however, the work is apparently innocent and devoid of explicit violence. Rather, the series represents the potential loss of innocence.

More photos from the series and a fantastic promo video for the book of the series after the jump.

What You Would Look Like If you Were Simultaneously A Kid And Adult

Parisian photo retoucher Cristian Girotto believes that somewhere inside each of us, there’s a young core, instinctive, creative but also innocent and naïve. He wondered “what would happen if this intimate essence would be completely revealed? ”

With the help of photographer Quentin Curtat L’ Enfant Extérieur (The Outer Child) was born, miraculously combining the innocence that are in children’s eyes with the pesky facial hair that one has to deal with as they transform into an adult. Simultaneously funny and poignant L’ Enfant Extérieur begs the question if age matters and if one can still keep the passion of youth alive in an adult world full of corruption, responsibilities and disappointment.

Iphone “Oil Paintings” Made With Your Face

When you hear the phrase  “Iphone oil paintings” you’re probably not thinking of rubbing your phone all over face to make a greasy abstraction on your phones screen but that is in fact what NYC  artist Jonathan Keller Keller has done. Working at the intersection of craft, collection, and computation, Keller seeks to transcend & transform everyday digital elements through obsessive, iterative, and generative processes. A good example of this is Keller Rubbing his phone all over his face with gusto (see the above Gif of him in action) transforming the dark phone screen into a canvas full of possibilities for abstraction. Yes it is weird and this may make you cringe if you’re a germaphobe but we’d be lying if we didn’t say that the gifs of the oil shining this way and that way weren’t a tad mesmerizing. (via)
