It’s a good thing that Robert Rickhoff isn’t involved in any actual urban planning. Put in charge of a construction crew, he’d probably build a volleyball court in the middle of a highway or erect ramps so cars can catch some air.
Just such questionable public amenities are presented in Rickhoff’s graduate thesis at ArtEZ in the Netherlands, appropriately titled “Out of Place.” The surreal series of manipulated photos introduce a metropolis in which the architecture is twisted to spawn new, strange functions.
I just finished this necklace made of upcycled plastic bottles. I cut some random triangles in the bottle, burnt the edges with a lighter to smoothen them and added some graphic lines with permanent white marker. I made a pair of matching earrings as well :)
