Made From Household Items
Have you ever looked at broccoli and thought of a tree in a forest? Or that a Jenga tower was a construction site in the making? Well, Tatsuya Tanaka, a Japanese art designer and photographer, sees inspiration everywhere. “Everyday occurrences seen from a pygmy’s perspective can bring us lots of fun thoughts,” Tanaka says. And in 2011, he set out to prove that.
He takes his musings and turns them into little works of art featuring food, bottle caps, SD cards, and other tiny trinkets. Tanaka churns out these little dioramas on a daily basis, calling it Miniature Calendar. You can also follow him on Instagram for a little burst of whimsy each day (By: Mentalfloss).
