Turning closet space into arcades

Michael Johansson's work is like real life Tetris. The Swedish artist converts everyday items into puzzle pieces and then, like a pro-highscorer, expertly arranges the objects into tight spaces creating bold color-blocked patterns. Johansson draws his inspirations from everyday irregularities. "Not those that appear when something extraordinary occurs, but those that are created by an exaggerated form of regularity," Johansson says. "Colours or patterns from two separate objects or environments concur, like when two people pass each other dressed in the exact same outfit." His installations can be found in select galleries and random alleyways alike.
