since the start of my quest to launch The Isis Nicole Magazine, 20% of my goal has been raised, and there’s still a long ways to go. so far, i have been able to send out 20+ cameras around the world. thank you so much everyone- every bit counts as i am looking forward to debuting volume one this autumn.
what are some incentives that will encourage you to help me make it to the finish line? autographed copies from featured artists? some nail decals? a party? please tell me what it will take, as i cannot do this without you <3
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!
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.
