There is a difference in finding beauty in mundane objects and creating beauty from items that are not inherently beautiful. Both require an discerning eye, but creating requires seeing the potential in ordinary objects to be beautiful if arranged correctly, and then doing the actual arranging – the creating.
This is a series of installations by Sakir Gökcebag. He was born in Turkey, went to art school in Istanbul and now lives in Germany. He makes artwork out of all manner of things – broken umbrellas, brooms, shoes, but I think his toilet paper sculptures are the most beautiful.
This is a bit of genius – to transform such an everyday, ordinary household object into complicated, beautiful artwork.
