Chromatically Assembled Junk

This will leave you amazed and no doubt agreeing with the old saying, "one man's trash, is another man's treasure".

Dan Tobin Smith is a photographer.

About four months ago, he made a call out to the general public on a website he set up,

He encouraged people to donate all their junk lying around their home that's no longer loved, needed or wanted.

But why?

Well, he had the most masterful plan for the 2014 London Design Festival.

You see, he converted his 200 square metre studio into an installation made up of those thousands of objects the public had donated in response to his call out.

However, he didn't just turn his studio into a junk refuge.

Instead, he created the most breathtaking (and I imagine painstaking!) chromatically assembled display.

Yes, from a distance you may have thought what I had? He has spray-painted sections of the installation.

But no.

Look closely at the photography and you will see that he has meticulously assembled the objects in groups of hues.









Feeling inspired?

We sure are!
