"The Antwerp-based photographer Jan Kempenaers undertook a laborious trek through the Balkans in order to photograph a series of these mysterious objects. He captures the Spomeniks in the misty mountain landscape at sundown. Looking at the photographs one must admit to a certain embarrassment. We see the powerful beauty of the monumental sculptures and we catch ourselves forgetting the victims in whose name they were built. [Kempenaers] allows the viewer to enjoy the melancholy beauty of the Spomeniks, but in so doing, forces us to take a position on a social issue." - Willem Jan Neutelings

All it takes is 100,000 toothpicks and 35 years of your life and shazam: San Francisco as a grand, kinetic sculpture. Time well spent, you ask me (and I assume you did). More pics can be seen at tinkering studio
