That's a lot of photoshopping time, holy.
Also: first Malkovich joke.

Seems a little... self indulgent, don't you think?

Can someone translate what I assume is his artist's statement in the video? Is it "I'm just this (bunch of) guy(s), you know?"

I like that they're all wearing the same outfit in each one. This is pretty neat.

We can put this guy in with the person who wanted to avoid mirrors for a year and watch them fight.

It reminds me of a similar project, but to photograph a street corner for some period of time, and the artist selected people or objects by color. It was posted on MetaFilter some while back, but I couldn't find it.

Surely I'm not the only person reminded of Where's Waldo.

filthy light thief, here's the project you mentioned. i loved those pics.
i agree, the ones in this series certainly do have a very similar uncanny-valley-ish vibe to them.

Thanks, rude.boy. And this was the previous thread, if I'm not mistaken.

How far we've come.

Rather, this looks like the previous thread that rude.boy mentioned, though the site is dead. That other link is the artist's general site, which lists Babel Tales in his collections.
