Can Amiibo be Tools for Art: Photography

So this week, I had an interesting conversation with a girl friend of mine that went along the lines of “Why do you even bother with those toys? Its not like any of the other things you collect. They don’t even move.” This actually made me ponder for a bit. I am a 30 year old man, I have given up collecting any sort of “toy” for the most part, even going so far as to give away a box full of anime toys and books at Anime Expo a while back. I am strangely attracted to collecting Amiibo and when I look at them, I noticed that I looked at them much like I look at a painting, or a nice photo; my eyes rest a little bit and I feel a bit relaxed.

There is a sort of quiet beauty to the toys, as if stuck in time. That is when it hit me, why don’t I try recreating what I see with these Amiibo I had in my car right then and there. Would she see what I see if I took an artistic photo of said “toys”. The answer was, to be honest, kinda. I took 12 photos, no enhancements, and these are the 3 best ones. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but will my eyes be like yours? Take a look and find out for yourself.
