Gallery: Mini figurines decorate guts of electronic machines

Credit: Mark Crummett

Photographer Mark Crummett's series Ghosts in the Machine centers around little scenes that use machinery as the backdrop. He uses tiny figurines as the cast, and sets up jobs for them to accomplish. There are even some randomly placed bunny figurines, possibly to mimic dust bunnies that the characters are tasked with cleaning?

Crummett comments on his project:

The 'ghosts' in these machines are just folks, dwarfed by the technology that pervades their lives. Engaged in enigmatic activities in an out-of-scale, high tech landscape, workers toil on industrial-scale electronic components or move through an out-sized industrial/technical environment.

Engineer-priests, in tune with the energy that informs the space, and residents, fraught with their problems, dreams and ambitions, are all apparently at ease with the visual paradox that is their backdrop. They become part of the landscape of technology, and technology becomes their landscape.
