penelope umbrico

some interesting projects made from found photos by penelope umbrico. the top is a detail from suns from the internet where penelope unearthed 541,795 pictures searching for the word 'sunset' on flickr, exploring the ubiquitous portrayal of this natural form in digital space. the bottom is from her project honeymoon suites which playfully deconstructs the notion of romance in marketing materials. here she takes very small fragments from horizons depicted on various honeymoon resort brochures collected at a wedding convention. see more of penelope's work here. and a big thanks to asha for passing along this link.
