According to Designboom.com, “Dujardin’s photomontages are a collection of impossible structures created using a digital collaging technique from photographs of real buildings.”
Designboom continues, “Most of his architectural creations are structurally implausible, however, seem perfectly ordinary at first glance, revealing their absurdity only as the viewer notices missing or incongruous details.”
The work of another Belgian artist, Xavier Delory, offers a similar effect.
Delory creates photographic works which are, “an exploration of mutating architecture, delving into the idea that cities tend to evolve with recurring characteristics. Each piece is digitally manipulated to create a strikingly convincing and compelling world of surreal architecture, revealing a message of a societal disposition that is perhaps not so unbelievable,” according to Designboom.com.
The subtle whimsey of this genre of fictional work, draws me in. I could look at it all day long. In my mind, the net result is yet another example of art that’s ‘so wrong, it’s right’.
