Photos Of A Giant Square Floating In Various Locations

Most people when face with a giant square floating in mid space would probably call the Men In Black. Not Benoit Paillé. Canadian photographer Benoit actually creates those weird installations and takes their picture.

Each photo consists of a 1×1 meters big, 300 LEDs panel secretly suspended using fishing wires, and is the only artificial light illuminating the scene.

Benoit shares some of the inspiration for the project:

I was interested in the introduction of a man-made object in an outdoor setting, a luminous square, a human element that forms a relationship with nature and helps it to be reborn. From this I feel a kind of poetry blossoms, linked to the presence of this regular shape, like a recurrent canvas that symbolically references creation, the blank page, the empty space that needs to be inhabited.#
