Hung Up


I'm kind of speechless about this art. Thanks to the wonderment of the internets, I've seen thousands of images of repurposed everyday objects. I'm pretty sure, however, this is the first to make me stop cold--that was before I even realized it is all made from coat hangers. I would so love to see this piece in person in order to better understand sculptor David Mach's process. The list of questions I have about this work is so long I don't dare to start it here.

W-O-W! Can you even begin to imagine the process of this piece? This is amazing!

Thanks for you comment, Jennifer. I was hoping there would be a video on his site showing more about how he goes about making these sculptures. I'm pretty good at imagining how things are made and remade, but I honestly can't even begin to reverse engineer this. This work is literally alchemy to me.
