"All boundaries are conventions, waiting to be transcended. One may transcend any convention, if only one can first conceive of doing so."
Wilson A. Bentley (American, 1865-1931): Group of Four Snow Crystals, circa 1905. Gold toned photomicrographs.
Photographer Austin Tott pairs the small with the grandiose in his series Tiny Tattoos. The delightful images feature hand-drawn body art that’s positioned against a background from which they visually reference.
So yesterday while I was working at the bookstore some girl came up with a barcode tattooed on her wrist. Of course, my first question to her was “Can I scan it?” I guess she had never had it scanned before and was pretty excited about it. She talked about how it was sentimental to her and stuff. I scanned it and she rang up as a bag of Jalapeño Cheetos. She then became livid and, of course, I was dying of laughter.
