High speed photography has truly unlocked the floodgates of the most brilliant, imaginative, and novel ideas. On the other side of the spectrum, however, it has also unleashed an astonishingly endless surge of the most inane, useless, and often asinine concepts. That however is not to say they are no less entertaining. Besides, whoever said art should be useful? Should it even make sense? Art constitutes that which arouses the senses or that which provokes you to react. A cursory look at the internet yields a befuddling number of discourses on “what is art?” So what is there to stop designer Manon Wethly, from throwing assorted beverages in their mugs and cups into the air, for her to photograph?

Austrian photographer Reiner Riedler pays homage to a sister visual medium, cinema, in his decidedly odd project. The Unseen Seen is a picture collection of film rolls, not just ordinary specimens of these; mind you, but some of the heavyweight classics from cinema’s masters. What seems to be another self indulgent foray into a flighty idea actually yields some surprising, if not bizarrely truthful images. Thanks to Riedler’s friend, Volkmar Ernst, they were able to get their hands on the old film archive of The Deutsche Kinemathek in Berlin, which describes itself as “The whole world of cinema under one roof – from the first moving images to digital film.”

The saying, “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts,” is certainly illustrated here in this picture series conceptualized by artist and photographer Todd McLellan. The idea is to disassemble as many gadgets and devices possible and photograph them in an utter state of arranged disarray, falling apart, or sometimes even thrown in the air. Originally dubbed Disassembly Series, the portfolio was later renamed Things Come Apart. It contains objects that are both retro and modern, items that we use in the course of our daily lives. It is also now a book published by Thames & Hudson.
