Miniature Industrial Cityscapes Constructed from Cloth Fibers and Human Hair

Using cloth fibers, human hair and dust, Japanese artist Takahiro Iwasaki (previously), creates incredibly detailed miniature scenes depicting large refineries and power plants. For a new exhibition at the Kawasaki City Museum earlier this year titled "Out of Disorder", Iwasaki used satellite images from Google Earth to recreate old cityscapes that evoke Japan's industrial rise. In order to construct the buildings, the artist soaked towels in ink, and turned them into rags. These dirtied fabrics, which resembled urban land leveled by an air raid, formed the base of the series.
