Takahiro Iwasaki

Takahiro Iwasaki

If you’re a creative-type at all you’ve probably messed around with a macro lens at some point. But Artist Takahiro Iwasaki lives in a macro World. He makes impossibly small, super-intricate works from carved electrical tape, thread and other materials. Many of the pieces shown here were part of the Constellations show at Cornerhouse in Manchester back in 2011. According to designboom, Iwasaki now has a new collection of much larger works at the 7th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art at GOMA in Queensland, well-worth checking out but I love the playfulness of his previous adventures in miniature…
