Double exposure photography isn’t new, but we all just remembered how cool it looks thanks to the True Detective opening sequence. Artist Hiki Komori (a reference to the Japanese “Hikikomori” that are recluses who seek isolation and confinement) takes the practice of double exposing a photograph to a level that even True Detective might not have hit. Hiki Komori (aside from the pseudonym, we don’t know much about the artist) juxtaposes faces and bodies with mostly industrial landscapes. We could get into the emotional ramifications of the seemingly disparate parts of each of these photo collages, but we’ll leave that up to you. We like the works because they’re just plain cool.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
