Project Description

Justin Poulsen is a conceptual photographer who specializes in building physical props–rather than relying solely on digital wizardry–to make ideas come to life.

To demonstrate this, Justin created severed USB thumb drives, molded from his own thumb and loaded with his portfolio, allowing potential clients to experience both the tactile and visual quality of his craft.

Production Lesson(s)

It’s harder to send severed limbs in the mail than you’d expect. Prepare to jump through some hoops.

Also, you can watch how it was made here.”
