Unsolicited Fabrications is a series of sculptures by Stephanie Syjuco. She recreated others’ SketchUp creations in easy-to-find materials. I love how they look half real and half modeled, since the colors and patterns closely match those of the SketchUp models. Although Syjuco appropriated these designs, she credited these “collaborators” in the installation in Dublin. [via Core77]
