Everyday Objects Get Flattened

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  October 12, 2007

Irish Artist Finn Magee created this series of works which take common electrical household items and turn them into 2-dimensional posters. The innovative part of his Flat Life series is that the objects remain fully functional in their flat states.

Finn Magee’s Flat Life

While they may just be flat posters, the pieces still plug into a wall socket. The images are then illuminated by embedded LEDs. For example, the desk lamp has a single LED to substitute for the light bulb. In the case of the alarm clock, he’s actually installed a 7-segment LED clock into the image.

Very cool stuff. I’m pretty sure these are one-of-a-kind works, but would love to see Magee produce these for the masses. I’d certainly hang a few in my house.
