I keep just one such picture for every figurine". ... read on his interview at the Morning News

I had an art teacher once, in a previous century (;-)), who suggested a similar visual idea for painters, to make still lifes more interesting, but his idea was to imagine the explode. This guy records the actual destruction of his subjects.

It has a quite surrealistic effect, doesn't it?
