I've been on a huge documentary kick lately thanks to Netflix. This weekend I watched: A Man Named Pearl (recommended by Besotted Brand Blog), Objectified and Art & Copy. They were all enormously fantastic and inspiring. However, one segment from Art & Copy especially caught my eye. It featured a wall art installation at Weiden + Kennedy, an advertising agency most famous for Nike's "Just Do It" campaign.
The installation was created by the students at Weiden + Kennedy's advertising school. The unique thing about this installation is that it's made up entirely with clear thumbtacks. How brilliant is that? I'd love to try this at home except on a much smaller scale and using foam core board instead of punching thousands of thumbtack holes in my walls.
The thumbtacks sparkle and shimmer in the light and create a beautiful backdrop. Plus the sentiment is pretty awesome as well.
Here's the video of its creation that took over 351 hours to create. I love how they started off by pushing each tack in by hand but eventually switched to a retrofitted screwdriver. Ouch, those thumbs must have hurt!
