Takahiro Iwasaki is a Japanese artist from Hiroshima, Japan, who transforms ordinary found objects such as tape, discarded toothbrush bristles and towel threads into small and intricate sculptures. Using everyday materials, Iwasaki creates topographical maps, landscapes, buildings, roller coasters and ferris wheels that represent technology, modern civilization, historical temples and industrial environments. They are meant for viewers to “question their interpretation in the contemporary world” (qagoma.qld.gov.au).

Iwasaki’s series titled “Out of Disorder” includes city skylines created from towel threads and tape. They “represent[ ] our world and how civilization simply occurs surrounded by chaos” (boredpanda.org).
