Amy Stein

“Domesticated” is a brilliant series by photographer Amy Stein. If the photos look a little unnatrual to you it’s for good reason, most of the animals are stuffed (rented from a local taxidermist)! Stein is interested in the transition between wild and domesticated and she constructs moments where one encounters the other. The series comes out of her fascination with hunting culture and our desire to domesticate wild things by taming them or killing and stuffing them.

I first came across Amy Stein back when her “Halloween in Harlem” series was popping up everywhere and I didn’t immediately identify her as the same photographer. Definitely head over to her portfolio, she ain’t no one trick pony.

  • Jessie Cacciola

    i have such a love for this series. so nice to see it again! i especially love the birds at McDonalds’ — it’s bad enough we eat like that, but then animals end of eating what we discard.

  • Jolin

    these are sick.. but man a desire to kill animals or stuff themmm – bit much.

    The first photo in the set actually happens (at least once) annually when the Rossland public outdoor pool is open.
    Better not to smell like coconut or a “banana boat” in that situation.

Captivating Stop-Motion Dissections of Everyday Objects by Artist Simon Gerbaud

Simon Gerbaud

 

Artist Simon Gerbaud has created a series of animations involving the incremental destruction of various objects like shoes and hairdryers as well as larger things like refrigerators and shopping carts. While the stop motion creations are strangely satisfying to watch on their own, Gerbaud has used them in several interactive installations in the past.

At the XII Feria de las Calacas in Mexico in 2012, the footage was synched to audience activated sensors so that the objects would disappear (or reappear) according to people’s movements, noises or breathing in the room. Check out more images and video of Gerbaud’s fascinating work below!
