a collection of image mosaics that visually compare peculiar mundane objects in urban space, ranging from office buildings, over fitness equipment devices to detailed car tail lights.

"the typological array’s inherent ability to depict prevalence & repetition make it the perfect technique for examining the excess, redundancy, & meaningless freedom of our current age of consumption."

Some very impressive imagery--though *nearly* ruined by the insertion of the artist's politics.

I'd love to see similar work from an artist who embraced their subject, rather than disdaining it...alas, that is a rarity in the West these days.

In college I did a series of man hole and storm drain covers. They're often quite beautiful, and some clearly designed them from an aesthetic standpoint, yet no one ever pays any attention to them at all.

That said, I'd take it a little further and say that the artist's attempt to make a statement really killed any chance of his actually making one. Very heavy handed I thought.

Check out Ed Burtynsky for some really phenomenal work on the intersection of humans and nature.

it's like Bernd and Hilla Becher but in an opinionate way rather than a non-objective way.
