Inspiration BS001 – things organized neatly

overheated by Marcel van Heist
Did you here about this wonderful collection of images already?
things organized neatly is a truly poetic project where people can submit images of little collections, disassembled objects, everyday items or anything else that is organized and arranged to form little still lives. They often tell small stories of incidents like this one where Marcel van Heist took a picture of some small parts that seem to be a broken bit of his coffee machine. I love this picture because it tells me this story of him, who obviously likes his coffee and seems to have been very touched by the breaking down of his machine, so he started to make this little commemoration of it.

Or this picture here by Dan Bejar were he kept getting copies of his apartment key done. One after the other until in the end he was left with a key completely useless because of a recurring mistake in the process that kept getting bigger from copy to copy. This picture stuck to my mind because it is not only visually appealing, reminding me of landscapes, site models and even historic images of mechanical parts, but also tells a whole story about information and originality in a very simple and inspiring way.
