Have you ever found yourself wanting to rearrange products in a supermarket, just because composition of the stuff on the shelves would look better? Don’t get me started on colours that don’t go together in the sweets section. Shelves would look so much better if for instance chocolates would be stacked into a rainbow.

Well anyway, this are the things I thought of first when I saw the installations by Carson Davis Brown. He artistically rearranges things in stores without their permission.

Mass is a site specific installation project about creating visual disruptions in places of mass (to date: big-box stores, super-centers, etcetera). At an intersection between Street Art and Land Art, installations are made without permission, using found materials within the retail landscape. The works are made, photographed, then left to be experienced by passersby and ultimately dissembled by location staff. Photo documentation of Mass works are initially exhibited in a consumer landscape. Printed, framed (in unsold frames) and exhibited in-stores; all without permission.

Under-Cats is a series of photos taken underneath, wait for it,…cats. And is followed by Under-Dogs. Yes, you guessed it, a series of photos taken underneath dogs. I love how photogenic a cat can be, even if it’s just laying on a glass pane. And with playful dogs, photos really come alive through their personalities.

Photos of pets from underneath on a black background became a signature artwork for a Lithuanian photographer Andrius Burba by now and I can’t wait to see more of his under-photos. Here is a link to his photographic journey from underneath.

Francois Dourlen says he’s just an ordinary guy, who found a way to express all the  funny little thoughts that are going through his head by superimposing pop culture characters into the real life situations with his iPhone.

His sharp eye for detail and a big dose of humour is kind of contagious and I became a real fan of his instagram profile. The ongoing series is so much fun and I’m looking forward of every new photo he makes. In his world a yellow bucket becomes a cartoon character, microwave oven becomes an escape route for Bruce Willis and Thor can help hammering nails… We need a little break from reality from time to time, don’t you think?
