Japanese artist Takahiro Iwasaki creates incredible urban landscapes using everyday objects like the bristles of toothbrushes, bath towels, and duct tape. For an exhibition organized by Kawasaki City Museum and the Open Museum Project, the Hiroshima-based artist created miniature scenes depicting large refineries and power plants, as part of his "Out of Disorder" series. Just like the rest of the "Out of Disorder" series, the artist used cloth fibers, human hair, and at times even dust to meticulously recreate miniatures of actual buildings. Iwasaki 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 Kawasaki series. Iwasaki's Kawasaki City Museum exhibition featured nine pieces of miniature oil refineries and power generation plants with intricate piping and delicate cranes.
