“Relics” by Cody Hamilton: Classical Grecian 80s Retro

Back in August on Core77, many an aesthete's fantasies were shattered by the news that Grecian statues, the beacons of elegance and sophistication that we so love and cherish, were in fact, originally, quite a romp of multicoloured kitsch (on Core77 here).

Talented Texan photographer Cody Hamilton, inspired by this finding, has created a deliciously anachronistic collection entitled "Relics" in which a whole host of 80s retro classics ranging from the Atari to the VHS tape—objects of perhaps the most gaudy of artistic eras—are given a minimalistic coat of marble white. We particularly liked the Rubic's cube.

More "Relics" and work on Cody's homepage.
