Atfal Ahdath

Atfal Ahdath‘s work explores and manipulates the techniques that have fashioned a culture of reproducibility and standardization and accelerated the Arab world’s fascination with fame. Portraiture becomes an art of disembodied faces and uprooted sceneries, infinitely reproducible and ultimately unconvincing. Individual difference dissolves into a visual detritus of mass-produced templates with which one literally does and redoes the memories. The work assembles a set of digitally-deconstructed and rewired images in order to produce memories that are untraceable, disconnected from their temporal coordinates. Memory outside time.

Weird skulls

Written by Carlotta on . Posted in art, photography

skull

Belfast-born artist Steven Quinn creates cheeky collages that he pastes together from cut-outs of various old magazines, fanzines, posters and his own photography, to create quirky, weird and wonderful portraits. The skulls below were created from images of solar systems, galaxies (far far away, enough of Star Trek), nuclear explosions, planets and landscapes.
