eyal pinkas

armed with a camera, eyal pinkas makes compelling interventions in domestic spaces. "i stage common objects and casual interiors, to suggest an autonomous behavior enacted by these components. a bed for example, becomes a vessel by dismantling its structure and sculpturing the mattress to a dynamic form. a breakfast hall is turned into a theatrical stage when the chairs and tables are repositioned in arrangements that look like a dance. using photography as a main medium, i record these acts and present them as images...the adaptations i am making can be best described as studies on the question of how something would appear if it were able to assume the identity it secretly desires." see more of eyal's work right here.
