  • the aliens
    by charles bukowski
  • 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 painted  by their previous owner, blithely going about their plastic lives. An unpainted woman, silently watching the bustle, serves as
    the melancholic narrator.
