Benoit Paillé’s Constructed DollarStore Pop Art
French-Canadian photographer Benoit Paillé created a series of constructed images entitled DollarStore. These dollar store dinosaur toys and other objects have been transformed from the mundane to the extraordinary. Through manipulation, repetition, and documentation with the use of stunning photography techniques over brightly colored backgrounds; these simple dollar store sculptures take on new glamorous aesthetic qualities. With this unique interpretation of the object the artist questions the social implications of cheap labor in China and abroad. Paillé is a self-taught photographer whose images are both experimental and yet resonate a high level of sophistication. See more below!
Makes you think.

So cute! I love when they start moshing and voguing.
I used cymatics as the inspiration and basis to form each square (note). I did this by using an amplifier and putting paper with salt on top , I played each note on the piano and when the salt vibrated it moved the crystals and when settled they formed patterns. I then converted the formations into the vector images.
Holy whaaaaat. Amazing.

Green Pedestrian Crossing created by Jody Xiong
The China Environmental Protection Foundation developed an outdoor campaign, displayed on the street, to creatively promote this message. They decided to leverage a busy pedestrian crossing; a place where both pedestrians and drivers meet.
The campaign involved laying a canvas 12.6 metres long by 7 metres wide on the ground, thus covering the pedestrian crossing with a large leafless tree. On either side of the road, beneath the traffic lights, were placed sponge cushions soaked in green, environmentally friendly, washable paint. As pedestrians walked towards the crossing, they stepped on the green sponge, thus leaving green foot imprints on the canvas of the tree. Each ‘green’ footprint on the canvas looked like leaves growing on a bare tree, which made people feel that by walking they could create a greener environment.
The ‘Green Pedestrian Crossing’ was carried out across 7 thoroughfares in Shanghai. The campaign was then extended to 132 roads across 15 cities in China, with a participation exceeding 3,920,000 people.
