lego bonsai by azuma makoto

Tokyo-based artist Azuma Makoto‘s works are usually of the botanical nature, like the painstakingly cut, twisted, and folded leaves that comprise his Collapsible Leaves sculptures. A few of his works though, like the Lego Pine, use non-botanical media to evoke visions of plant life. I love how the angular lines of the Lego make the piece look like a pixelated picture.

The Lego Pine would look great on a table next to his stellar astroturf-covered Herman Miller Aeron chair (the same chairs we have at the office here).
