    All I keep thinking is: where did all the feathers come from?

    • http://www.dannyolda.com Dannyohh

      yeah, very cool looking piece, but I hate to think they’re real feathers

      • Oana

    • MAXIMUM

      Maybe he spent like 6months on a peacock farm and picked up every feather that dropped..

    this is borderline animal cruelty…

    It’s probably because I watch too much Sci Fi, but the final images are reminiscent of some strange planet from Star Trek. Incredible idea and use of the feathers… If they aren’t faux, I hope they were gathered humanely.

    look at the site, he is constantly playing with taxidermy animals and what not in the work…though, idk, maybe Jolly_go could look into roadkill as a more reasonable and interesting source material. . +

    The first few images look like illustrations, the way they have been photographed almost doesn’t look real, it’s a really interesting effect. I’m not sure I understand the reasoning behind hanging mass amounts of feathers in the woods though, they almost look like wrapped up Christmas trees or hammocks.

    There’s a Belgian artist called Jan Fabre who sticks green beatles to all sorts of stuff like mannequins and skulls or in this case ceilings and a huge globe.
