To you, it looks like an attic filled with junk; to an artist, it’s a masterpiece waiting to happen. To you, it looks like a bunch of storage boxes; to an artist, it’s beautifully organized chaos. For a bit of creative inspiration, here are four artists who have created with clutter.
1. Michael Johansson
Tetris meets your storage unit.
2. Ursus Wehrli
Ah, that’s better. If you’ve ever thought daily life was too disorganized, you’ll be relieved to see everyday objects sorted by size, color, and shape.
3. Michelangeo Pistoletto
That pile of clothes on your floor doesn’t seem so massive anymore, does it?
4. Song Dong
One woman’s hoarding is another woman’s treasure.
