When it comes to the world of objects as portrayed in the Dumais Smashed set of images, balloons destroy sharp knives and eggs crush falling bricks.
When you see a heavy paint can quickly approaching a light bulb, you have a reasonable idea as to what the consequences will be -- smashed glass everywhere. What you don't expect to see is the breakable glass light bulb having more impact on the steel can than the other way around. Artist Sylvain Dumais amazes the audience with his use of common objects by changing the laws of physics altogether.
Through these fantastical imaginings, the Dumais Smashed imagery transports us to a world where harmful objects are smashed to bits by seemingly weaker items.
