icy details


I saw these ice cube trays a couple months ago at Spoon Sisters. I thought they were funny, but Kotama Boubane saw a hidden potential that I wish I could have discovered first. She's taken cliche breakup lines and photographed them in ice. I hope none of you have ever used these phrases or had them used on you. But for those of you who have, you know that ice may actually be the perfect medium for communicating these messages. Anyway, in addition to being an absolutely brilliant concept, the composition and color schemes are gorgeous - very isolated and lonely. I especially love the pictures where she has created a scene for a breakup (in bed, at the restaurant, in a garden of dying plants, etc.). Very clever. Her chalkboard collection is also exceptional.
