Klaus Pinchler's Dust
This one has been making the art blog rounds the last week or two, but I like it so much that I'm going to go ahead and jump on that bandwagon. Klaus Pinchler sweeps the floor at various public places and then takes photos of the dust piles that result. Turns out each place has it's own characteristic dust. Which, okay, is slightly grodey. But also so cool!
Above is the detritus from a tailor shop. Below we have, in order: a police station, army store, toy store, classroom, pet store, fine art photo gallery, subway station, furniture store, cafe, bedding store, and a general merchandise store.
