The SpY Interventions Rearranges How We View Things

Rearranging common objects in an unrealistic way is how the SpY Interventions photography collection really captures viewers' attention.

He doesn't create elaborate set-ups, and instead, SpY uses simple concepts such as replacing a public telephone with a banana or painting a skateboard half-pipe as a soccer field. Whoever looks at these images is caught by the shift that they impose on the urban setting, causing us to rethink these objects and their purpose. A basketball net, for example, is commonly used to play ball, so seeing it out of reach at the top of a building or used as a flower pot holder is absurd.

The Spy Interventions reworks how we see our surroundings.
