Statoil by Souverein is a surreal photo series that has been masterfully retouched to depict buildings made to look like plugs and sockets. Although the images lie in the realm of fantasy, they look authentic, which is a testament to the work of the Weesp, Netherlands-based production company.
Clearly commenting on the energy consumption of certain architectural creations, Statoil by Souverein is as eye-opening as it is artistically captivating. From factories to stadiums, people often take for granted the amount of power it takes to keep them running. Power that is essentially being drained straight from the earth in one form or another, if only due to the toll its effect is taking on the planet.
