Artist Adam Kennedy has released an unusual depiction of the globe in his Planet Universe series. The compilation points to the unusual semblance between fire hydrants and images of the world, both of which feature jagged cracks and divisions.
Kennedy is based in San Francisco. It was within his city that he observed the decaying hydrants, prompting him to take up this creative project.
At the heat of his portfolio is chipped paint and rusted metal. Paired with these snapshots are his digital manipulations, making the public fixtures appear much like maps of the world. Kennedy aims to make his viewers see everyday life a bit differently, "I hope it also makes them think about what there is on earth that they might have been missing all along.”
