I’m a fan of public projects that exhibit a pranky quality. Project Transformers by French-Swiss artist Guillaume Reymond of NOTsoNOISY is just that — a “ballet” of vehicles tightly choreographed to move together like a Transformer. More than meets the eye. In a word, awesome.

The performance was staged in three variations — buses [above], ambulance and firetrucks [below], and bicycles [sorry, not as cool-looking as the other two].

I just watched Manufactured Landscapes, a documentary on the work of Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky, whose images of industrial landscapes and manufacturing sites are both awe-inspiring and incredibly depressing. Guillaume Reymond’s performances seem to be the flip side of the same idea — awe-inspiring visualizations of man-made excess, but playful and absurd.
