In Montreal, Canada, two artists decided that if potholes are here to stay, they can at least provide a little levity. Photographer Davide Luciano and food stylist Claudia Ficca took to the streets to transform “the bad into good”, after spending $800 on repairs when their car hit a pothole a few years ago.
They found the biggest, most notorious potholes they could and gave each one a new use: a bowl for spaghetti, a cooler for champagne, a place to wash your dog and so on.
And yes — they actually did stage these scenes. For example, here’s a chef frying up some doughnuts:
Or grape stomping:
Or two friends, just palling around on a summer afternoon:
Or some ladies have a wild ~*GiRl’S nIgHt OuT*~:
And so on. To me, these images hold a mirror up to that surreal part of winter when it gets so bad, it starts getting funny. Check out a few more on Luciano’s website. [Davide Luciano]
