paint rollers are given preposterous purposes in this latest photographic series by copenhagen-based studio PUTPUT. the collection of images forms a vast catalog of 60 different handles paired with a quirky selection of everyday items that mimic the tubular form. vegetable skewers, corn, a sex toy and a cigar are only a few of the atypical objects that replace the function of the roller, each attached to a plastic handle and photographed simply on a plain grey backdrop. ‘we have been painstakingly collecting paint rollers and objects for an extended period of time in order to complete this series of images in an exhaustive and all encompassing manner,’ stephan friedli and ulrik martin larsen of putput say. in a meeting of the practical and the purely decorative, PUPUT gives a mundane task a new expression and fictional typology for an imagined purpose.
