For my web design class at the Corcoran College of Art + Design I was asked to create a simple site inspired by a poem of my choice.
An antique box of plastic figurines branded PLASTICVILLE USA, which I found in a local thrift store, seemed ideal to convey the mood of Charles Bukowski's poem, The
Aliens. I photographed this group of diminutive citizens, half-heartedly
their previous owner, blithely going about their plastic
lives. An unpainted woman, silently
watching the bustle, serves as
the melancholic narrator.
