Tommy Smits Is a multimedia artist from the Netherlands. He is working as a photographer, filmmaker, art director and sculptor. Smits aims to turn contemporary objects and photographs into fossils, his main goal in life is to one day become a fossil himself.
By casting photos in concrete, Smits claims to have invented photographic-concrete, which he will refer to as “Concretography”, a method of solidifying photographs in rock. He likes to give fleeting immaterial photographs a solid and unhandy frame, or place them in the wilderness of the great backyard. He created the worlds largest frame when he climbed a mountain in Switzerland and embedded a resin cast photograph of a lawnmower in the top.
The idea that archaeologists could find his work in the future, debate and determine what they found, gives Smits great enjoyment.
