Behold the summery awesomeness that is the Bignik, a gigantic picnic blanket on a field in Stein, Switzerland. It’s a large-scale interactive art installations created by Swiss artists and twin brothers Frank and Patrik Riklin. Bignik was constructed by sewing together towels, curtains, sheets and tablecloths, all of which were donated to the project. Visitors were invited to bring food, games, sunscreen and plenty of friends to enjoy an epic picnic.

"Art has to have a clear function", Patrik says earnestly, and his brother Frank shares that conviction: "It should be experienced amidst life and not be confined to art galleries and museums!"

The Whimsically Macabre Scenes of @__remmidemmi

To see more of Sandro’s explorations of “bodies with no regret,” follow @__remmidemmi on Instagram.

In his macabre, tragicomic photo series, Italian photographer Sandro Giordoan (@__remmidemmi) explores the willingness of people to put the safety of material objects before their own well-being.

When conceiving the project, _IN EXTREMIS (bodies with no regret), Sandro drew from personal experience. “Last summer I had a small but tough bicycle accident,” he explains. “I lost 30% of my right hand’s functions because I never let go of the object I was holding as I fell.”

When, shortly after, a friend broke his leg to prevent his smartphone from falling in water, Sandro became concerned. “We live in a time where we risk material things becoming more important than our own lives, and this is really worrying.”

Sandro channeled his concern into crafting meticulous and whimsical photos. “I immediately felt the urgency to capture the moment of impact. I wanted to talk about obsessions, neurosis and frailties of our times through my personal experience.” The resulting photos are at once humorous and haunting.

Many think that the wildly contorted bodies in Sandro’s photos are dolls or dummies. Not so, says Sandro. “I work exclusively with professional actors who are able to position themselves in anatomically impossible poses because they are trained to use their bodies to communicate.”




the past is a strange place

cops on bikes used to transport criminals like this


this guy worked as an alarm for waking people up


one wheel motorcycle


pin-boys who manually lined pins up


baby cage for families who wanted their kids to get enough sunlight


zoo-keeper showering a penguin


But who woke up the guy that woke everyone else up

"Sorry I’m late, my alarm clock overslept."
