Daily Contaminations


Electronic bugs are invading your home! Don’t worry -you aren’t being monitored and you don’t have to call an exterminator. These bugs are from a series called “Daily Contaminations” from sculptor/photographer Luca di Filippo.

These itty-bitty bugs with their motherboard bodies and wiry legs are di Filippo’s statement on “the invisible electronic traces we leave in our daily activities.” Like the unseen insects that invade the darkest nooks and crannies of our houses and apartments, these traces surround us even while we remain oblivious to their presence. Of course, we’re occasionally reminded of their existence, but most of us prefer not to think about them. Out of sight, out of mind.

If so, you may also emit a squeal of delight at these wonderful ’70s-era illustrations of space colonies, which we spotted at Visual News. VIA: –FLAVOR WIRE

Places of natural decomposition of such objects can be unusual tourist destinations and sites to capture amazing photos.
