You can go from a dense urban area to wilderness in a matter of moments”. MacLean is lives and works in Lincoln, Massachusetts.

100 lastcamera3 The Detritus of Our Past – Artwork by Maiko Akiba

Japanese artist Maiko Akiba gave us a glimpse of the future with her series “100 Years Later”. The series features artificially aged everyday gadgets, clothing, and objects.  Among the aged objects are: a digital camera, shoes, a coat,  jewelry, boots, an accordion, a vending machine, and a calculator. The aging was artfully done with what Maiko calls “aging paint” which is basically fake rust and artificial moss/lichen. It’s basically a homage to today’s accelerated culture where the hottest gadgets today become obsolete in a matter of months.

hk 2 Hanging from the Ground – Clever Ads by Christian Åslund

The skewed, top-down perspective isn’t something new in the world of photography but Christian Åslund’s wide angle shots certainly gave it a new twist. His series of photographs for the shoe brand Jim Rickey had models lying flat on the streets of Hong Kong pretending to walk, sit, and hang on to perfectly upright objects. The height from which these photos were taken sets it apart from other series utilizing this unique perspective. This amusing series is a tribute to the old-school 2D computer games.
