From 2009 to 2016, German artist Janusz Grünspek built an ambitious project, piece by piece. Armed only with wooden sticks and hot glue, the Kleve native created dozens of wireframe replicas of everyday items in a style reminiscent of 3D CAD software used to design prototypes for industrial design.
Janusz started off with more basic and iconic geometric shapes - a cup of coffee, a Happy Meal, a Macbook - before challenging himself with more elaborate forms like chandeliers, complex machinery and furniture. Viewing them from a distance defies logic as they appear to be actual line drawings, suspended in space like some form of low-tech augmented reality. Each piece stands on its own merit, but it’s only when you see them all in the same room that the scope of this project and the level of the artist’s dedication is revealed.All images courtesy of Janusz Grünspek
