Weekly Photo Challenge: Work of Art?

A work of art, only a mannequin or just a photo of a mannequin? You decide.

Busy days lately, so I had to recycle and create something (hopefully) artistic out of something ordinary. I’ve posted another version of this photo earlier. The eternal question remains: «but, is it art?»

Old, Norse Warrior

Here’s more from my «Mannequin & Music» project.

This mannequin is an old, viking warrior, so I thought it’s suitable to pair him with some Norwegian Black Metal music. Black metal is an extreme subgenre of heavy metal music and Norway’s largest ‘cultural export’.

This band is called Taake (fog/mist) and the song is called Orkan (hurricane)

If you want to experience Taake live, they’ll be playing at the Black Music festival in Oslo in March.  For more info, check out www.infernofestival.net

Weekly Photo Challenge: Forward

Currently one of my numerous projects is a «Mannequin & Music» project. The theme for WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge this week is ‘Forward’, so my idea was to combine the two. Here’s the result:

I think these two mannequins have a futuristic and forward feel to them…

Mannequins & Music. The combination continues.

Inspector '71

Inspector ’71

Inspector ’71 is the title of another tune by the Norwegian band Kåre & The Cavemen.

Mannequin comes from the French word mannequin, which had acquired the meaning “an artist’s jointed model”, which in turn came from the Middle Dutch word manneken, meaning “little man, figurine”
