    so this is what they mean when they say, “living in a bubble”. to me this self is in it’s comfort zone looking at the world. kind of like the internet, you’re in your pajamas and bed however exposed to endless scenes both at once. watching videos of the world.
    rad series

    didn’t the one contestant on work of art do this?

    The idea is really interesting, this is like inserting privacy into public or less private places. Because these situations are not real, nobody pay attention to her and that creates a disturbance that make the viewer think about this notion of private/public space.

    I was gonna say, Young Sun from Work of Art did a self-portrait similar to the first one, except his body was naked and drenched with water, standing, instead of in a bathtub. The composition is pretty much the same too.

Colourful Yet Catastrophic Photographs by Japanese Artist Yoshimitsu Umekawa

umekawa6

Equal parts mesmerizing and unsettling, Yoshimitsu Umekawa’s photographs are positively (and negatively) nuclear, drawing on the issues and anxieties that surround modern day Japan. See more images below.
