Magnifique works by Kevin Van Aelst, both simple and detailed at the same time. Definitely one of my favorite findings from today.
“My color photographs consist of common artifacts and scenes from everyday life, which have been rearranged, assembled, and constructed into various forms, patterns, and illustrations. […] While the depictions of information—such as an EKG, fingerprint, map or anatomical model—are unconventional, the truth and accuracy to the illustrations are just as valid as more traditional depictions. This work is about creating order where we expect to find randomness, and also hints that the minutiae all around us is capable of communicating much larger ideas.”
