I know precisely nothing about its genesis or anything else really, but this is very cool: tumblr Goldenfiddle has been collecting a series of images with titles like “Kristen Stewart – arrives at Comic Con in San Diego, California, 7.12.12″. When you click on that image, what you get is something like the above.
It’s very cool as an art project, but what makes it especially interesting is the way it uses form to deflate expectation. If you stumble across it while scrolling through a Tumblr dashboard or RSS feed, you click expecting one thing, and then get another. More than that, what you get is a thing reconfigured beyond recognition.
You know, just like your desire.
