Photographer Gray Malin has created a new series titled Art of Living by installing iconic mid-century modern furnitures on the top of a 15ft by 15ft mirrored platform constructed in Bora Bora. This series challenges the viewer to question the conventional way in which we experience man-made design against the natural environment.

How did Gray Malin create the series Art of Living?
He first conceptualized a 15 foot by 15 foot mirrored platform and worked with local Polynesian engineers to construct it. Then, an archetypal selection of mid-century modern pieces were selected, sourced, and curated into 12 individual vignettes; placed atop the platform and cast along the sparkling French Polynesian waters, these vignettes were then photographed from a vantage point that presented the silhouette of Mount Otemanu as a perfectly symmetrical backdrop.
