Scarcely have I laughed as much as I did today, when I took a break from 12 to 3pm to surf the internet in order to protect my cream-cheese coloured skin. Giuseppe Colarusso‘s photos of absurd objects that will never come into existence, referred to as Improbabilità, came right on cue to put a smile on my face and so spiced up my day at the seaside. The question the photographer posed himself with this project is: what would happen if the meaningful feature of diverse objects was altered radically? Some objects would be plain useless.
Others would be fairly useful, if there were such things as Cyclops or if drawing castles was more important than simple geometry.
The last category pertains to the want-to-have effect, where one actually wonders why these objects haven’t long since existed. Who wouldn’t like to turn on the faucet and fill one’s glass directly, instead of pressing the fruit in a time-consuming manner? How about a spray can where the colour can be adjusted just like white balance? 😉
