8,799,661 Suns `From Flickr (partial) 3/8/11, 2011

You see a lot of images like this these days. Actually, you’ve probably seen this kind of thing a lot for a while now, if you’ve been looking.

The picture is by Penelope Umbrico and was found on the Rencontre Arles site. Actually there’s lots more of this kind of thing on her site – lots of New Aesthetic-y pixellated, Flickr-ish overloaded ‘similarly different, differently similar’ image grids. That probably doesn’t make much sense – I should find a better way to describe her work. I should probably think about it a bit more.

But it does seem very much of the times…

Some more images:

Sunset Portraits, 2011

Instances of books being read, 2007

Instances of Books Being Read (from home-decor and home-improvement webistes and catalogs), 2007

There are lots of other really nice images, too big/complex to put here – I liked Views from the Internet (2008), From Catalogs (done in 1998) and Dogs on Pillows (not sure when this one was done).
