Temporary Carpets - It's Art

Brick Carpet -photo by Boudewijn Bollmann www.twistedstreets.nl
Plastic Fork Carpet
Pasta Carpet
Designers Stijn van der Vleuten & Marcia Nolte & visual artist Bob Waardenburg make these temporary carpets without a sketch or plan. They take materials like pasta, plastic forks and bricks (all shown above) and just build them on the spot, layering the materials until a carpet appears.
I have to say, they are quite beautiful! Scroll through their blog to see more.

It always looks like Halloween

It always looks like Halloween

When the lights dim in the Liceu Opera House in Barcelona.

Like smiling pumpkins

Thanks, Val.
