the cartography of the sky: levitating dreamlike houses by zabadu

germany-based artist and designer matthias jung — who works under the name zabadu — creates fantastic buildings by the collage technique. titled ‘the cartography of the sky’, the series depicts imaginary houses made of little pieces taken from photos, flying in the skies.

we were still alive when the gardener came

 

 

cutting apart his photos and building new realities, zabadu aims at creating coziness and soulfulness. ‘a building has to first be stable and credible before I can add some ‘disorder’, to let it fly for example,’ explains the artist. ‘one such disorder refers to another, only hinting at reality. I weave, so to speak, spiritual realities into everyday things.’
