The Art of Clean Up

Even the freakiest of all neat freaks indulge, let loose, and allow themselves to feel the pleasure of disorder every so often. It can be as simple an act as leaving dirty dishes in the sink overnight. Or something more repetitive, like consistently abandoning socks right where you’ve taken them off. Monika had the locked closet – which revealed (when Chandler finally managed to bust it open) that beneath the surface, Monika was really a closet hoarder.

Perhaps even Swiss artist Ursus Wehrli has the tendency to embrace disorder in his own way. Though his work would certainly suggest otherwise. The Art of Clean Up is a series that expresses Wehrli’s attempt to organize the most unlikeliest of things. Like a bowl of alphabet soup, a child’s sandbox, and a night full of stars.

How does he do it? Like this:

This is cool. He “tidies up” a group of people at the beach, and all their stuff. Well, they’re acting like they’re at the beach, but they’re really at the park.

It’s been said that there is genius in disorder. This may be true, but Ursus Wehrli sure makes tidying up look super fun. Love to see what his living space looks like.

Until soon,
