Really Big Coin Skrekkøgle
This is our Really Big Coin. It is big because it makes other things look small when photographed next to it. Actually, it is a 20:1 replica of the EUR 50-cent, you see it being milled out here. We needed to do quite a bit of sanding, lacquering and smudging to obtain the desired look and some climbing to get into required shooting position (you need to get up real high to take good pictures). The result is a short series of photographs, attempting to visually scale down real-sized objects.

what the fuck
this fucked up my brain
oh god what
my mind even interpreted all those real objects as looking plasticy and less detailed like “wow those are nice models but pretty obviously just models”
^^ same! then I went back and noticed they’d used focal length to selectively blur things, craftily making it look even more like a macro photograph
I’m pretty sure they also used tilt shift to heighten the effect.
Actually all Borrowers, fucking with us BECAUSE THEY CAN
