pianobuttons03 614x460 Strung Sewing Button Sculpture

This piano is just one of a number of similar pieces from Miami artist Augusto Esquivel.  He works by arranging lengths of dangling fishing line in a grid from an overhead support, and then carefully stringing them with variously-colored sewing buttons to create space-filling forms.  It’s kind of like one of those mosaic beaded curtains, but in three dimensions.  [Thanks, Matt!]
