What's happening in most of these staged furniture photographs is a clever bit of Photoshopping to fantastically blend bodies into everyday items around the home. Bara Prasilova of Prague carries out a circus-inspired style of art that makes the ordinary into something extraordinary.

This series of images comprises several tables, cabinets and a sofa that have all been rendered from inanimate to animate with the addition of whole, partial or distorted human forms. Legs emerge from the bottom or surface of tabletops, occasionally accompanied by load-bearing arms. The entire crouching figure of a suited man intersects with another furnishing, enabling his top hat to serve as an elegant centerpiece. An impossible headstand assumes a posture for a pedestal and a woman's lower half extends beyond the length of a couch.

This staged furniture series whimsically invites you to reconsider your relationship to the items around your house.
