Lauris Paulus – Rewind

A series of stunning photographs of statuary with videoesque distortion by Swiss artist Lauris Paulus. Three questions:

  • Would we have looked at these differently 20 years ago, when horizontal bands of video distortion weren’t a sort of artifact themselves? I think yes.
  • What do you want to bet we’ll see a trade paperback book cover (matte stock of course) using that last one in the next half year? It’d make a lovely reprint of Brave New World. For that matter the first one could serve to update Chip Kidd’s original cover for The Secret History, and if I were tasked with covering a book on celebrity culture, I’d definitely make one comp using the David one.
  • Is Lauris a man’s or woman’s name? Good question. Man. Here’s a picture of him with his cat.
