The constant presence of smartphones have helped us see the world in a different way. Many of us are guilty of spending too much time with our heads turned downward looking at our phone, but the device can also inspire us. History professor Francois Dourlen uses his iPhone to insert scenes from movies into real life settings; it’s creative and the effect is amusing. Dourlen explains:
Like many people, I always imagine weird things when I walk in the street, when I work or when I’m home. But I never found a good way to tell what goes through my head.
One day, wanting to make a joke with friends, I replaced a statue of Napoleon in Cherbourg with a picture of my little pony in my phone and took a picture. I had so much fun that I put it on facebook, people immediately liked.
He’s made memorable images with scenes from Lord of the Rings, Thor, Edward Scissorhands, and more. They’re all fantastic.
