Brock Davis, a talented American artist, shows us how ordinary objects that usually do not shatter would look like if they were shattered on the floor.

its good. i will not give it any more than that.
imagine if everything could actaully break like that :(
woah. yeah that would really suck. but crazy art!
indeed, interesting art!
the shattered bananas- that would make a good band name. I go bananas for the shattered bananas

The shattered cap looks unreal
love this concept

Melting would be better…
Couldn’t you just do this by freezing the items with liquid n2 and throwing them against something? >.<

it’s alright. nothing spectacular. i can see that the items were just cut and placed on the floor. it takes too much imagination to perceive the items are “shattered”. great try though.
liquid nitrogen is way more awesome.
Agree with both a1a and neuro…

very surprising effects and more brilliant concept.
Fun concept. Not sure whether I would call this true fine art though. It falls into the “Oh how clever” category for me.
i don’t see any of these guys above me doing anything half as fun. i think it’s pretty awsome. keep it up!
….king ney sayers
cool art i love it by the way i bet a shattered picture would look cool to!
the banana one is the best
In the Coffee Cup pic, I think the coffee (liquid) should be “shattered” too…
It’s interesting, but I feel as though the banana and hat don’t really come across as shattered…
so basically he just cuts up stuff and takes pictures of it. ah how modern art has destroyed true emotion and talent.

The tissue box and the duck looked the most convincing to me.
I’ve seen a shattered banana before. My chemistry professor put a banana in liquid nitrogen and it froze the banana. He threw it in the air and shattered when it hit the ground
jack is rigth this is cra p
It’s a good idea, and interesting. I wouldn’t say its “crap”
Go get yourself a razor blade and some patience and you too can make thinks look like they are “shattered”. I thought this would be cool but I’m disappointed.

Its so obviously photoshopped (sorry)
I really love it

I think that if these were really shattered they would have spread out more on the floor…
Which really would have made it too hard to photograph.
I like the concept, it’s just not quite as realistic looking as it could be.
almost a polar opposite of Dali and his “soft” imagery (clocks, phones, ect.)
I find this very pleasing to look at. I can’t help but think the negative comments that are on here are just people who must say something that’s not pleasing. I highly doubt they find this ‘crap’. They just have to be negative.
These are intriguing…I very much enjoyed them. Keep it up!
If Damien Hurst can stick a shark in a tank and call it art and make a load of money out of it, I see no reason why this can’t also be called art. Art does not have to be realistic, indeed, it doesn’t have to be anything! Non-art, now there’s a concept! (which has probably already been done)

Might look more realistic if you put stuff in liquid nitrogen first then REALLY shatter…
Amazing! I have never seen anything like this before!
Nice Work! :)

I think it’s a great idea and well done. What’s with all the negative remarks and AGAIN with the photoshop stuff?
it is obscene, who in their right mind would cut up a rubber ducky :-(
Good photography. But anyone could have thought of it. (“but they didnt” i hear you say)
Very cool! If the photography itself was just a touch more compelling, seeing the pictures might be as much of a message as the shattered art itself. ;)

Isn’t that just…what would happen if they were frozen in liquid nitrogen, then dropped?
Jun 6th, 2009
i know the artist who made this. no photoshop here.his work is brilliant.
Jun 11th, 2009
I love stuff like this. :)
If pacifiers could do that in real life though, I would never be able to give my child one *ouch*.
Jun 12th, 2009
Awesome! Very creative.
Jun 13th, 2009
It’s called liquid nitrogen. It freezes anything to a brittle shell. Cool, but not mind blowing.
Jun 14th, 2009
The shattered coffee cup has to be my favorite. It’s brilliantly broken.
Thank you for sharing your work.

Brock, nice work. Is it for sale? I’ve got a campaign with these images all over it. —Scott (yes, that scott)
Jun 26th, 2009
pretty simple, but neat and something anyone could do.
Oct 11th, 2009
Coooooooool stuff – I like the shatterede pacifier!
Nov 23rd, 2009
wow. the first time seeing stuff like that! really great work there.
Jan 13th, 2010
This is just wow. Its pretty cool cause how do they do that
May 20th, 2010
that is very ocward but awesome!!

He probably frozen them in liquid nitrogen and then dropped them. It’s not that hard to figure out.
