andrea mastrovito


Whoa. Now THIS brings found image collage to a whole, entirely new, super crazy level! This is an installation from 2013 in Switzerland by Italian artist Andrea Mastrovito. It’s titled The Island of Dr. Mastrovito II and is made from thousands of bits and pieces from flora and fauna books, reassembled into the craziest little ecosystem EVER! So amazing! I would love to see this in person so that I could take a really close look at all of the many, many, many layers. And maybe even meet this little guy…

Love.

{Thanks to my friend Mary for posting this on Facebook yesterday… instalove!}
