“In The Spyfrost Project, photographer David Trautrimas hypothesizes the origins of iconic modern appliances by reassembling them into top secret, Cold War era military outposts. These skunkwork structures, hybrids of both machinery and architecture, stand as colossal weaponized  ancestors to common objects such as refrigerators, lawnmowers and washing machines. Fashioned with aspiring futurism, yet an ominous sense of militaristic purpose, these installations link the parallel development of capitalism’s postwar consumer culture and the Military Industrial Complex.”

In each and every one of his works, one can realize how cleverly Trautrimas has merged specific pieces of different devices in such harmonious way, rendering each scene as a city scene out of those industrial objects. Besides its aesthetic appeal, the context of his works influenced me a lot. The technical blending of the images with real landscapes renders his work perfect. Below are several images of his industrial complex.


 

Above are his city meshes, and below are more illustrative and conceptual serigraphs of him.

The artist “re-purposes” daily house objects to form fantasy cities immersing them into real landscapes. He applies his works in the name of a  modernist architect. I fell for his works first, then his statement and the way he assembles his idea into what he calls the Habitat Machines. For the rest of his works and full statement, visit.
