Artist Christian Weber from Nuremberg in Germany has sent us a series of still life photographs that each connect two unrelated objects.

The project is called Unintended Fusion and comprises found objects such as an aerosol can and earphones (above), connected together using cables.

Here's some more information from Weber:

Unintended Fusion

Having two obviously different objects in front of me, I suddenly realized how I am able to create a dialogue between them by combining their functions.

Although the function of the single objects does not belong to each other you can still plug them into one another. In each photograph the two objects are connected with a cable, which gives all objects an infinite loop of user emotions.

Looking at each of the new objects you will find yourself confronted with an emotion which emerges from the new sense of purpose.

    Oh, BROTHER. Please don’t tell me this is the first time some artist or designer has tried to “humorously” or “whimsically” juxtapose unrelated objects. Christian Weber definitely wins the Poseur of the Year Award for saying, “Having two obviously different objects in front of me, I suddenly realized how I am able to create a dialogue between them by combining their functions.”

    “the two objects are connected with a cable, which gives all objects an infinite loop of user emotions.”

    and

    “Looking at each of the new objects you will find yourself confronted with an emotion which emerges from the new sense of purpose.”

    er uhh nope. sorry it must be above me.

    @Chuck: I agree…
    @Christian Weber: Too easy connecting with a cable… Try creating a dialogue between the objects without one… You’ll find it harder, but eventually more convincing, if done correctly…

    phone: “hy, i´m a telphone, what are you?”

    vidoe-cam: “oh, hy, i´m a video-cam. how are you?”

    phone: “not so fine, i do not function without elctricity, how are you?”

    video-cam: “not so fine, too, seems i got the same problem like you”

    phone: “yeah, seems some idiot has connected us, insteed of using us….”

    thank you, christian, never felt such emotions emerging form whatsoever

    It has a level of third-world poetics to it.

    Utter bollocks.

    Poorly photographed too, the angles are off and the shadows are distracting.

    These seem more like “Intended Fusion”.

    Unintended is like a car and a streetlight after an accident. Someone put these together intentionally.

    Looks like somebody had a brilliant idea after a night out on the wine…. Shame that the joke went too far and ended up on here….

    Yes but you also use emoticons.

    The only two unrelated things connected here are the artist & her creativity.
    And they just don’t work.

    Previous speakers have some pretty boring people. They look in the mirror and believe what they see.
    I like the combination of different objects. It opens a new perspective in terms of the process of semantics. It shouldn't depend on the cable, man …
    Good work
