Today I would like to introduce you an artist I found lately: Kyle Bean.
Disposable Technology: A response to our consumer relationship with technology and obsolescence. By Kyle Bean
I was born in Devon and gradually migrated across the south coast of England before settling in Brighton. I am passionate about developing creative ideas which I often resolve through animation and three dimensional forms. I am coming to the end of my degree in Illustration at the University of Brighton.
I have been involved in projects for clients including Ford, The New York Times and BBC. My work has also been featured in the book ‘Tangible: High Touch Visuals’ and magazines including Computer Arts and ARC Design in Brazil.
Recently I have gained experience working with Brighton-based animation studio KANOTI, CRUSH(Design and Art Direction) and BLINK production company in Soho.
Check out more of its work after the jump. Continue Reading »

He is not exactly a photographer but I discovered him through his flickr profile, where says about himself:
Hi! irI5 here… I am an artist who specializes in using non traditional media… old books, cassettes, playing cards, magazines, credit cards… whatever I can find. It feels great to work with strange, older materials. Things that have a mind of their own. Most everything I use has been thrown away or donated at some point. Past its prime, like some of the finest things in the world. : ) I welcome all questions and comments.
Thank you for stopping by!
I found his work pretty interesting, I like the idea of the artist becoming back to life straight from his work. Also iri5 shows some collage related works. Check it out:
Ghost in the Machine: The Clash
Ghost in the Machine- Tom Waits
