two completely unrelated things i've been inspired by lately: ground zero's recent fall 2015 ready to wear collection and these "transparent cuts" photographs of stones by schmott.
ground zero's collection uses photocollage, patches, bold + clever verbiage and graphics that look like a cross between a cigarette pack and a car racing uniform. plus oddly shaped futuristic sunglasses that are wonderful and weird.
schmott's photos feature thin sections of stone samples from the f.a. finger institute for building material science weimar, which come from motorways and buildings. the stones reflect light making them appear transparent, then they are enlarged in the darkroom and reproduced on color paper.
