re-interpreted everyday scenes by robert rickhoff depict impractical yet humorous situations

german artist robert rickhoff re-interprets the idea of public space with humor through a series of digitally manipulated photographs in a project entitled ‘out of place’.  rickhoff augments scenes within a seemingly commonplace environment to depict impractical yet lighthearted situations – including a playground slippery dip facing towards a busy road to a speed bump placed in an unassuming residential street that is actually a daredevil ramp. the visualizations are subtle yet provocative, forcing the audience to look twice to notice the unusual setting infused with tongue-in-cheek wit.
