Influenced by Japanese flower arrangements, called Ikebana, Bermuda-based artist/photographer James Cooper created a series of wearable ‘sculptures’ using materials found in his immediate surroundings. Although the photographs are all staged, the helmets are intentionally kept simple, resembling the creations of a deranged DIY enthusiast. Speaking about the project Peter says, "Helmets are something that are around me all the time in Bermuda, people by law have to wear them on mopeds, so they are a super familiar object. I wanted to take that logical and everyday object and shift it into something more ridiculous and illogical. "
