Boy Sees Hearts
Digital Art - Photographic Montage
As Featured on AHA Life as the Unique Discovery of January 20, 2011:
"hearts are everywhere. However, most of them are way too saccharine for us. Then we saw these Boy Sees Hearts' Skull and Smooch collage prints, and the way we looked at hearts changed forever.
Made up of hundreds of randomly occurring heart shapes that Boy Sees Hearts creator Eric Telchin has snapped on his iPhone and not altered or retouched. They�re edgy, clever and fresh�all adjectives we never thought we�d associate with something as clich�d as a heart. Telchin didn�t either, until he saw his first heart in a puddle of melted Ben and Jerry�s New York Super Fudge ice cream on his kitchen counter. Amazed, he grabbed his phone and snapped a pic.
Suddenly, he was seeing hearts in the most unexpected places -from cat litter to coffee spills- and taking photos of every one. A year later, he made his first collage from the hearts he�d collected, Skull. When the buzz went far beyond anything he�d anticipated, he created another one, Smooch. The reaction, he says, has blown him away.
�After viewing Boy Sees Hearts pieces, people are inspired to view their world through different eyes,� he says. �People think the pieces are gorgeous, but what�s most incredible is how it encourages them, in their own lives, to see the ultimate symbol of love within something as mundane as a crumpled napkin or a crack in the sidewalk.�
Now that, we thought to ourselves, is the kind of heart we can get behind."
This matrix depicts a human skull comprised of 601 found hearts captured on an iPhone 3G from 7/31/09-10/27/10. Hearts are comprised of materials such as flowers, garbage, chocolate ice cream, stains on sidewalks, shadows, light, a plastic spoon and a navel orange among many other things.
