Anton Repponen is a New York-based interactive designer and the author of this great project called The Misplaced Series in which he took 11 iconic New York buildings and removes them from their surroundings and “misplaces” them in desolate landscapes around the world. Concrete behemoths and steel-and-glass towers rise from sand dunes and rocky cliffs, inviting viewers to see them as if for the first time. Out of context, architectural forms become more pronounced and easily understood. Each image is accompanied by a vignette, a flight of fancy that enhances the overall sense of absurdity, mystery, and humor. They are like scenes from a movie never made, fitting companions to images that could never actually be.
