It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.

Philippe Weisbecker

"...In essence, Weisbecker's art consist of depicting elements of our daily life untouched by the sometime devastating effects of fashion's changing mood. These range from tools to appliances, from industrial buildings to public housing and, in the present case, greenhouses. Greenhouses were created for the purpose of preserving an inner world from the outside world. they haven't changed much over time. Their purpose created their form. There lies their eternal beauty. It is this beauty that Weisbecker invites us to share with him through his Greenhouses study book."

Jon Rafman

Jon Rafman's latest project The 9 eyes of Goolge Street View (recently exhibited at the Saatchi Gallery) is dedicated to odd Google Street View photographs. The strange, singular moments are incredibly addictive to scroll through. Have a look here and a read about the project and the artist here.

My favorite is the spooked reindeer somewhere on a deserted coastal stretch of Norway's RV888 highway.
