To anthropomorphize something is to assign it human characteristics; this can be an animal or an object. It’s the reason why so many cars seem to have faces. It’s also the reason why Aiden Glynn’s “Toon Bombing” series of street installations are so immediately appealing.
As you glance through his gallery you’ll likely ask yourself whether you’ll ever look at a potted plant, a mailbox, or a piece of rusted machinery in quite the same way again. By attaching cartoonish eyes and, in some cases, even teeth and tongues, Glynn has turned familiar, everyday objects into creatures that seem to radiate personalities of their own.
