about blank



I'm not a brooch wearer, but these reflective designs by about blank have really caught my eye (with some of the explicit shapes, that is unavoidable...) The brooches take every possible form- iconic celebrity poses, honourary medals, sex positions, miscellaneous shapes- and each reflect the viewer's visage. Although many of the subjects are immediately recognizable, the brooches are made more intriguing by the void of mirror within the edges. I think the top left one is quite funny. I wonder how long it would take an observer to realize what is being shown.

Those are great. (The sex brooches could be good for bar hopping, an excellent pick up line!)

gotham addict, you may be right, but I think observers might stare at it for a while trying to interpret something less risque. (I'll let you know!)

Thanks for the kind comment-

The sex brooches would be fun to wear just to see people's reactions. Especially if you wore one with something innocuous like a twin-set and pearls. Hah.

Exactly! I would wear the XXX ones with a nice little tweed jacket.
