Inspired by his father, who used each moment of boredom as a chance to build and put up another shelf on the wall, artist and furniture design student Darragh Casey developed an intriguing project entitled “Shelving the Body”. According to Fubiz, several photos were taken by the artist at the Central Saint Martins 2012 Degree Show, with a theme that is said to explore the relationship between people, shelves and the objects they hold. The originality (and dare we add- craziness) of these installations consists in the fact that the shelves are only stable if supported by the human body. Do not even try to understand the practicability of this project, but instead try to appreciate its oddity and playfulness. The resulting photos are not so bad either; be sure to check out the video below to see how they were made.
