Ever wondered what the cities of the future may look like? In his Con/struct project, Justin Plunkett assembles buildings and bits of cities out of his photos. This way he creates monstruous building that resemble former soviet structures.
With this series, Plunkett examines the effect of brands and marketing on cities and our environment in general. In his digital explorations, special attention is given to iconic buildings, like churches, shopping malls or skyscrapers.
The Con/struct series was recently on show at the Cabinet, a successful exhibition of these beautiful prints.
Con/Struct is an exhibition of limited edition art prints and ran until the end of May 2014.
Con/Struct is an exploration into the themes of empowerment and imagination. Plunkett, using his own photography, has created new juxtaposed environments that encourage questioning and exploration: inviting the debate around how marketing- induced aspiration and perceived value can empower but can also corrupt, how it can be both perverse and create beauty. At the same time, at the core of his work, he honours and applauds ingenuity and the creative spirit.
