The Island of life by Satoshi Hirose

Using a collection of plastic caps gathered from bottles consumed over the course of nine years, Japanese artist Satoshi Hirose created this amazing sculpture currently on view at Galleria Maria Grazia Del Prete in Rome. The found-object island rests on a rectangular wooden platform which has had a small nook cut into one of the two longer sides of its base; this undersized shelf contains an assemblage of golden beans. The massive shape fills the center of the gallery space, inviting the viewer to interact with the piece by moving around it.
