Portland, Oregon-based artist Cari Vander Yacht scans vintage photos from thrift stores and converts them into these hilarious GIFS.
There is something so attractive about another persons undone-ness. And not in the, oh they are in their sweatpants…or hey, their hair is all scuffed up after a nights happening. I’m talking about dirty fingernails. Where in the dirt where you? In a sense I’m not thinking about dirtiness. But a scuff, some oily substance to your hair, a tiny hole in your shirt you couldn’t seem to tuck in, or sew up. It may not be an appearance at all. It’s something mental. Something protruding off your body that I just can not place. Why do you chew the skin off your cheeks? What is so wrapped in your head that it protrudes physically?
It is not a scar, or a bite, or a hangnail. It is something you carry with you that doesn’t quite effect you enough or too much. It is what I wonder about. What I want to ask. Of a stranger and of someone I know very well. A case where I will have to wait until they reveal themselves.
