It looks like sky was the primary source of inspiration for these images. Enjoy.
SKYplay series combines white clouds with different real world objects.

It’s a cute idea, but these are really shitty quality.
Jun 7th, 2008
rachel needs lovin. these are very unique!
Cenzi, unique means one of a kind, something cannot be very one-of-a-kind.
this is not art. any person with a camera could have done any one of these. you people did not even try. stop patting yourselves on the back for this utter, worthless shit.
John is an ass
I second “not importants” remark.
These are okay, but at least get someone that doesn’t have a hairyass hand.
Hairy hands = bad art? And art = shitty quality? I thought art was the expression of ones mind/feelings not the quality (or hairyness) of ones hands.
Breathtaking? Not at all.
Gonna go do that.
DUDE you have ridiculously hairy hands… shave or something man, come one
[insert common name here]
first to anyone who says this isn’t art: look at the first picture. notice how the model thingy’s back hand is behind the cloud.
second to Wright: shaving your hands has go to be the stupidest thing a person could do!
Photoshopped. Thats why the quality is so bad, because when you scale down quality its harder to notice the changes he made.

yes that is the point, Yeah Right. He used photoshop to layer the objects in front of the sky. did anyone honestly think that someone was holding things up? the point is that there is that he inserted the objects well enough that the match up with the cloud patterns.
Whats up with the hands?
People are too critical with art. Art is simply one’s vision and the expression and interpretation of one’s ideas. If you don’t like the way it came out, so be it. It may not be up to standards with your taste in art, but that doesn’t make it not art. Maybe people need to stop rudely criticizing other peoples ideas and embracing them and helping them. I think these are great and perfectly capture the vision that someone obviously had when they came up with it. Whether its painted or photoshopped, it doesn’t matter. Beautiful.
That man has very hairy hands.
It’s slightly creepy.
how did he get the monkey to hold that stuff up there? must have been a chimp….
….but it’s an original way to make money off of a monkey and a camera…. neat pics too.
Wow, such childish comments. Art is in the eye of the beholder. These are all wonderful.
The hand in the first picture is not BEHIND the cloud, look at the shape of the right hand, it is cut in a way that actually fit the cloud perfectly, no photoshopping necessary. And look at the lighting in all the pictures, obviously not ‘shopped. You guys are idiots, I think some of these pictures are amazing.
wow.i cant believe you guys took the time to bash such a creative idea.if you dont like it,go and not like it.but dont bash a dudes form of expression.open your mind and go do something not half this cool.jesus i mean who gives a shit if the dudes hands are hairy.hands get hairy.big freakin deal.i on the other hand thought these were pretty damn cool.i would of never thought of that.keep it up man.
Jun 9th, 2008
Nice pictures. Very creative indeed. Now if you could figure out a way to turn them into cash that would be even better!
these are amazing! i love simple things that are beautiful. and to the nitpicking haters: what is art anyway? are you the one that finally figured that out?

The images are inspired, even if in a simple way. And they’ve actually materialized in a way that people can comment on good or bad. Sounds like more than enough to me.
5 sec in MS paint
Rachel. Your comment makes you sound like a deusch
The are beautiful — but were they photoshopped or were they photographed? I feel like the depth of field would be different if they were photographs. Nevertheless, very pretty!
Jun 10th, 2008
Whoops, some spelling- and grammatical mistakes :~)
[dont copy and paste my name... i want you to type it out when u quote me!]
it is very east to hold something in one hand and take a picture with the other… its not that complicated… if what jackson pollock did was art so is this… its just something simple that someone did before you… and you are jealous of it…
do a barrel roll
Person who very possibly has an actual brain
Even if they are photoshopped or ‘shitty quality,’ it doesn’t matter. It has no effect on the viewer’s enjoyment of the idea. And it’s not like there’s some rule that all art that’s worth anything can’t be created in photoshop.
But I’m not gonna lie… those hands are pretty damn hairy. But shaving your hands? Dude, that’s retarded.
Jun 11th, 2008
Actually the hand of the puppet is not behind the cloud
if you’ve ever seen one of those kinds of dolls their hands are round on top and flat on bottom the hand is merely bent back. Not everything on the internet is photoshopped.
That’s a fun and creative idea:-))))
The Cheshire Cat
Hey, these made me grin.
tHE ONLY USEABLE ONES ARE THE ONS WITHOUT THE HAND THE HAVDS ARE SICK!
Jun 12th, 2008
Pure art! Thanks for sharing such beauty!
agreement with ‘Person who very possibly has an actual brain’.
you can argue anything to be art. even photoshopped images are art in a sense.
and yes those hands are hairy altho i have seen worse + i dont judge. shaving your hands… honestly?
Jun 13th, 2008
nice pics. looked at each for about 10 secs to take in the idea. then spent 10 mins reading the comments. must have done something right1 dontcha just love the haters.
Beautiful :) unique.
Those haters don’t know the true meaning of art.
easy or not, it’s beautiful and full of expressions.
Jun 14th, 2008
I have always had a pursuit of original ideas of my own… I always look at things around me to see if I could make something out of them that I could turn into art. I still look at the urban environment around me to discover all those crazy ideas that i have that no one else can see to only discover that clouds in the sky are the perfect way to show some imagination and creativity to other people. You have an excellent way of showing people what you see and what you feel that very moment you look up and see patterns of something in the sky. We all look at the sky once in a while in our lives. I think these pictures remind us that when we look at the sky, we always take the patterns of the clouds and combine them with our man-made devices. anyway…. every cloud is different and every opportunity is different but capturing these moments and sharing them with us is a great thing. You have a mind of an artist.
Keep it up!
Jun 15th, 2008
Jun 16th, 2008
those haters, yeah, haha!
I also spent more time reading the comments than actually observing the photos!
some people here got no class, excuse me for saying!
someone takes pictures and then uploads them to share their interest and joy and there are people judging the hair in their hands, this is the first step to pornographic aspect of art enjoyment, you need training, some of ya clever haters!!!!
this is wack.
YOU’RE SO COOL
a little elf
Those are Santa’s hands! You morons! You are not getting ANYTHING for Christmas!
(Nice pictures, Boss!)
Jun 17th, 2008
Ahh nice. thanks for thet “why didn’t i think of that moment”
Get this person to make one of someone smoking a bong!
i'm gonna eatcha
his hands are hairy? i hadn’t noticed until you overly criticizing people pointed that out. thank you for telling me something that i didn’t need to know. for all of you who said something bad about that why don’t you go shave your hands. see how many people think that that’s cool.
I think this is really cool, because its changing something we overlook constantly into something with a new perspective. Way to be creative :)
a short collection of people shaving their hands would be a little bit deeper and ask questions, provoke.
how would u do that??????
i like the hose and first paint brush. as for the comments that anyone with a camera could have done this, most art is, just like anyone with microwave can make popcorn, no one is impressed about how hard popcorn is to make they just like popcorn.
Jun 18th, 2008
I think anyone who says this is art really takes away from real artists who put a lot of time and passion into what they do. This is stupid.
These photographs are not ‘shopped. You can see the high resolution originals on Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/h19/sets/72157594182549008/
just another chick
i agree with lovesbutt,
do a BArReL role! haha good stuff
no but really, everyone needs to caaalm dooooown
it’s all good
inculding the pics, thumbs up :)
I could probably shave my left hand OK, but I’m not so sure about the right.
The pics are very cool!
HAHA – classic comments ..
think the idea was cool … could probably think of cooler things to put infront of the clouds …. but nicely done none the less .
Jun 19th, 2008
I thought this was a fabulous idea I enjoyed all the clever ‘uses’ of the sky. I would love to be there when you see a potential sky and have to go grab what you need for it. They don’t last long and you never get the same sky twice.
I bet there are ‘the-one-that-got-away’ stories!
Thanx for sharing.
the hands are creepy….especially the one with the test tube…its really really scary D:
I think john is right… this is worthless shit
Jun 20th, 2008
Wow…this is just amazing.
i like them but does anyone not notice that these wispy type of clouds are actually CHEMTRAILS.
please look in to CHEMTRAILS because then you’ll notice they are DEADLY…Please don’t make light of them they are slowly killing us..causing all different kinds of mental and physical illnesses in us mere human beings
take care people xx
“It looks like sky was the primary source of inspiration for these images.” haha no really?
Jun 22nd, 2008
Wow, that’s awesome!
Very creative. :D
great idea! just need better camera
john,i also think your an ass
art is all around us,it just takes somebody with a brain to see it,obviously you dont have one.
i bet you never lay on the grass as a kid and looked at the clouds in the sky to see what animals and things you can see in them
art or not… who cares? i got a good laugh out of it. crazy idea. love it.
eh, great idea, poorly executed. though i probably couldn’t do any better.
Jun 23rd, 2008
those hands are artworks in themselves.
imagine just the hair touching your neck.
very creative one thanks for sharing it
Jun 24th, 2008
Having said that, they are pretty cool, just not “breathtaking”
Somewhat creative ;)
i really like them, no matter what anyone else says. plus i agree with meh, art is ones self expression. of course there will always be people who don’t like it. but me? i think it’s a great idea ^_^
Cool idea and photos, but I don’t know if I would call it “breathtaking” necessarily. Still, good job!
i think this is a cool idea. you people who disagree go ahead but at least keep your rude ass comments to yourself. art is anything anyone wants it to be, some people would think a pile of trash was art, take a picture of it, and sell that picture for hundreds of dollars. this is his idea of art, so shut up and appreciate his creativity.
mildly enjoyable, not as entertaining as the comments you people madly posted.
and moira…theres a reason people can put a price on art..because theres a definition of it, just because you cannot put your finger on one of the many definitions does not mean art is this open ended thing, it most certainly is not, there is quality to art and there is art that lacks quality then there is the stuff people like to slap the label art on just so they feel special. This is and isn’t art, looks to me like someone got bored.
I liked them
I found the comments funny
I wonder how hairy your butt is cos the hand frightens me.
I dont know why people that could never come up with an idea like that keeping posting that its not art or that its not good, cmon evebody envy isnt a healthy thing…
I really like your pictures thank you for sharing them :-)
Jun 25th, 2008
Look up more.
If not original, at the very least it’s well-done. Thumbs up!
These are nice and fairly creative, but I’m not going to say they are outstanding by any means. Would be nice if the images were higher quality- some of these look like they were taken via cellphone.
As to the comment about the first ones hand being behind the cloud, that is a flat plane that you’re seeing; it’s not behind anything.
Jun 26th, 2008
wake up clouds are not streaks throught the sky. WTF
very good concept awesome
Jun 27th, 2008
Creative. And that’s why some hate, because they lack any creative skill or ambition. Sitting behind a monitor criticizing something that one lacks the will or ability to even come close to is not talent, nor a real use of any cognitive ability – it’s a true waste of time and energy.
GET OUT AND DO SOMETHING REAL CREATIVE!!! (you’re all living proof of IDIOCRACY)
Photoshopped or not, it’s art, and time well spent.
rachel is a negative nancy! ( booo hooo the qualitys bad!!!) knob. this is an awsum idea! and done soo well
Really cool. I’ve always been a firm fan of the sky. I call it Nature’s TV lol
this is to john…. appreciate it for what it is you negative pos
Jun 28th, 2008
There was a guy in Mexico that attached a dog to a pole and let it starve to death and considered it art and tried to sell it. That was bogus, this is not. It’s very creative.
i love them. they made me smile. thank you.
Jun 29th, 2008
Art is subjective! You cannot say that it is not art. You may not like it but whether or not it is art is not up to you to decide.
good but im better than sky art im a movie star and i broke up with shannon so IM SINGLE love,josh
not fantastic stuff but it kicks julian beavers ass!
Cody Elliot Sortore
I like a lot! Very fun images. I see a lot of people have been very hard on their quality, which could be a concern if you’re a self centered egoistic bastard… but they’re very nice. It’s a great idea.
oh my god i cannot believe this site is still receiving active commentary…..I remain firm in my conviction. this could easily have been replicated by anyone with some time on their hands, and seriously, somebody shave that dude’s arms.
Jun 30th, 2008
nice, i like it.
Very nice images. The perspective is fabulous!
Jul 1st, 2008
AKviking shush you have no idea what you talking about, for all you know the criticizers are artists themselves, thats usually why one critiques, they know about the subject, do you think all artists get along so cheerily and complement each other on a regular basis, heh, wrong, YOU should get off your ass and get a life because your making comment on things you obviously have no idea about.
Why do people have to be so negative? Someone had a good idea, took some lovely photos of something which does no one any harm, and took the time to post them onto the internet for other people to enjoy as well.
If you don’t like them, you don’t have to comment. If you see someone walking down the street and you don’t like their coat, you don’t say to them “Excuse me, your coat is awful.” The internet should be no different just because you can remain anonymous.
Thankyou for the photos.
Jul 2nd, 2008
Hell yeah, great job.
Have any more?
Thats lovely jubbly. Like the album art covers : )
Jul 3rd, 2008
i dont give out that personal info
i think its a waste of time but it looks cool
Glad My Hands Are Practically Bald
It is plainly not photoshopped. Otherwise the artist would have used his skills to clean his hands up.
Terrific set of images. Thank you Artist.
These are so cool. i like the fourth one best! :):)
Really cool and creative. Very Imaginary

These photos are surreal at best but contain no qualities which could change society or the way we view it. they hold no social context. like i said they are surreal and i believe the value stops there. so instead of writting cool, nice, great job, very creative, why ont you try writting why. Try thinking about what the artist is trying to do. Is he trying to provoke our perception of what art is and how we create it. I believe the artist is trying to show us a way to create an illusion with his tool the camera. I would go ahead and give him a positive response by saying he succeeded in this and the challenge here is that the camera can only record what we see, or that the camera can record light. Therefore the task of creating something surreal, with out actually creating it as an instillation first then taking the picture, can be challenging. This is not a photograph i would put in my house because it contains no social or historical context, importance in todays art community should be focused on phylosiphy and society and nature and the way we communicate with those subjects. In the end I am only one man and can say these photos are cool. but what does cool really say.
Jul 6th, 2008
“It looks like sky was the primary source of inspiration for these images”
Really? are you sure?
Cool idea- I’m always seeing these amazing skies but on their own they might not communicate to others. Great, creative way of making use of them!
:) i like those. Good job.
Jul 7th, 2008
Photomaj has to be the biggest twat I’ve ever come across. He would probably do a poo on a plate and hang that on his wall for the historical context. Tosser!

Awesome! I applaud this excellent idea.

Clever and original regardless of the actual source. Keep it up!

Oct 27th, 2008
I would have enjoyed this more without comments.
Oct 30th, 2008
his hand is not behind the cloud in the first picture. art mannequin’s hands are shaped like an egg cut in half. the shadows and exposure on the objects closer up are consistent with the background and i dont think that the image quality is that bad. the constrast is the same for the background and the object in the foreground for each picture which also supports that the pictures aren’t photoshopped. and stop judging what you think is art and what you think is not. this is not your place to judge, and if you had any pieces of what you call art, you would be defending them agains people who dont have anything better to do with their time as well

Yea Morgan :] !

the only people who bash this awesome stuff are terrible artists who see art that is way better then theirs. message to you guys- my 5 minute pencil drawing of border patrol shooting a space alien is great art. argue with me if you can
and hairy = manly
Does anyone know when the last train goes…. and to where?

Jan 30th, 2010
great idea and well executed. I really like them. I also wanted to add that hairy hands are sexy and anyone that has anything bad to say; if you don’t like it why are you even taking the time to comment on it? just move on. Sheesh. Bunch of rude people.
Dec 14th, 2010
Love the textures. Juxtapostion of the ethereal clouds and the the objects creates great tension. I don’t think the hand is behind the clouds, it’s pointing away and has a flat “palm”. The lighting on the hands is superb! The creativity in choosing the skyscapes and matching up the tools is enviable and the entire sequence took thought and time. I just love it. As a grouping, it would make cheerful, thought provoking home or corporate art. I’d be tempted to sell it on a stock photos site. It’s just quirky enough to catch the eye and diverse enough to be useful in a variety of industries/settings. sf
