In this still life photo series by French artist Alain Cornu, everyday objects are made less ordinary when their susceptibility to the force of gravity dramatically disappears.
In the still life photos, domestic items are flung against the ceiling of a pretty modern home, creating scenes of oddly suspended, immobile chaos. In one image, a toaster and its accompanying rounds of bread are scattered across a ceiling against a peaceful background of light blue wall paint. In another still life photo, a beater still full of whip cream and a neatly arranged flock of strawberries hang above a room. In yet another, a paint roller creates a puddle of maroon on an otherwise pristine white ceiling.
The still life photo series emphasizes the stillness and placidity of domestic life, injecting a paradoxical tranquility into shaken-up scenes.
