Best of Kickstarter: The Second Lives of Old Pizza Hut Locations

HO_HAI_TRAN_PIZZA_HUNT_1HO_HAI_TRAN_PIZZA_HUNT_2HO_HAI_TRAN_PIZZA_HUNT_3

Sydney-based photographer Ho Hai Tran has been documenting Pizza Huts that are no longer Pizza Huts; locations that have been converted into other businesses such as pawn shops, churches, and liquor stores.

Tran’s just launched the wonderfully hopeful “Pizza Hunt” Kickstarter so he can make a nice book of all his photos (so far he’s shot more than 100 Pizza Huts).

Watch the video below!

Sculptures by Jaime Pitarch Strip Everyday Objects of Their Functionality

Subject, Object, Abject (2006) – Chair, wooden shavings from chair legs

 

I’m obsessed with these sculptures by artist Jaime Pitarch that I came across on the Spencer Brownstone Gallery website.
