When you find yourself strenuously carrying 4 bookcases, a chair and roughly 20 boxes filled with books across a dual-carriageway in the middle of London at 4am on a Saturday morning, it’s because one of several things have happened.
A) Your night out has taken an unexpected academic turn
B) You took a naughty substance and the whole thing is a figment of your imagination
C) You’ve agreed to help with an art project masterminded by the talented Justin Bettman
In our case, it was the latter.
An ongoing art project by Justin Bettman, Set in the Street consists of elaborate interior spaces made from unwanted or discarded materials and furniture. After shooting photos in the spaces, the sets are left up on the street, where passersby can shoot their own photos and share using the Instagram hashtag #SetintheStreet. The final photographs Justin shoots explore the complex ideas of perspective and perception through revealing the larger picture that we often overlook.
