Are you a compulsive organizer? If so, you’ve probably never taken that characteristic to the height that Michael Johansson has. And I mean literal ‘height’. The Swedish artist’s sculptures make quite a spectacle out of organizing, categorizing, and color coating miscellaneous objects. He’s organized everything from huge shipping container structures to small, kitchen utensils. Each finished piece is a mesmerizing network of functional objects that have been rendered useless due to extreme tidiness.
