Takahiro Iwasaki - Out of Disorder (2013)
"At first glance, Iwasaki’s created world Out of Disorder looks a bit odd and doesn’t really make much sense. It seems to be erected out of nowhere: microscopic sculptures are randomly placed amongst the most banal everyday objects such as rolls of tape, a messy towel, or a bunch of sprawled tooth brushes. The tiny detailed miniatures look like real life shrunken objects such as wonder wheels, electricity pylons, etc. The artist even carves topographical maps on thick grey or blue electric tape.
But if you take a closer look, you’ll see that the intricate and almost impossibly small symbols of modern civilization, combined with random everyday objects, create unexpected urban landscapes. Out of Disorder represents our world and how civilization simply occurs surrounded by chaos.”
