Sugar and junk food monsters by photographer James Ostrer. Supportingly the photographer wants to comment on obesity and our obsession with sugar stating (via the press release) “This adornment becomes a mask of what we eat which then becomes entwined with a hyper-pop sensibility and an obsequious inquiry into the great volumes of sugar that flow through our bodies.”
Its hard to be convinced though, as his models are thin (especially the girls) and so nicely adorned that you want to lick them! ( not so sure for the burger guy..)
Currently exhibited in Gazelli Art House in London until 11 September 2014. Pictures via Junk Culture
A collection of experimental garments by Grace Kubilius (Photos by Carrie Anne Kelly)
Junk Bones is an exploration of the garment as an artifact, relic, or ghost. Torn and shredded materials have been woven, braided, and stitched back together. Paint, shellac, plastic, and rust have been used to coat and cover surfaces, transforming soft fiber materials into brittle exteriors, and stiff, rigid structures. When worn, the garments begin to unravel, decay, and crack.
