Have you ever been bored at your desk and started playing around with your office supplies? Well, artist Peter Root took your everyday staples and turned them into an entire city in an installation called Ephemicropolis.
Miami-based artist Augusto Esquivel realistically duplicates objects by suspending thousands of sewing buttons on mere strings. Each strand of his incredible sculptural pieces work with their adjacent string of buttons to create colorful replicas of everything, from a basic geometric cube to a stone fountain covered in flowers and spouting water.
Creative art installation by Leandro Erlich features what appears to be a real swimming pool with people walking beneath the surface of the water. To make the illusion, thin layer of water (only 10 cm deep) was suspended over glass. Below the glass, there is an empty room that visitors can enter. Fake swimming pools were installed at the PS1 Art Center in New Yorkand the 21st Century Art Museum in Kanazawa, Japan.
