Organizing Everyday Disarray.

What do you get when you give a bowl of fruit salad to a guy with OCD? This would be Ursus Wehrli’s interpretation. The Swiss comedian and artist began his career of visually tidying up a few years ago. He noticed a messy pile of red squares in American Artist Donald Baechler’s abstract art and was inspired to recreate the image with the squares stacked up neatly. This comedic alteration of modern art lead to many others which he compiled in his first book Tidying Up Art.

Fresh Impressions on Brandmarks (from my 5-year-old) – YouTube.

Sorry, this has made all the blog rounds but man it is really cute and spot on. Makes it very clear that logos need to be instant reads. And, makes you realize how much children really absorb…. My favorite part: cheetah, cheetah, cheetah.

Thanks for sharing, Adam Ladd

seen on Brand New, Kottke.org, others
