When we first spotted French artist Daniel Firman’s work over at Lost at E Minor, we weren’t sure what we were looking at. Was it some kind of extremely uncomfortable performance art? Just one-off photographs of models posing with rubber? Wait – wouldn’t they suffocate? As it turns out, Firman’s strange and darkly funny pieces are 100% sculpture, which is impressive, considering how realistic his human forms look under all that rubble. His work investigates humanity’s interaction with its own environment – including its own trash – and seems to predict our loss in the battle against the junk.
