Practice: Re-Envisioning Everyday Objects (Christoph Niemann)

One of the most delightful Instagrams we know of is Abstract Sunday, an ongoing array of illustrator, author, artist Christoph Niemann‘s stunningly imaginative work. Our favorite theme is his re-envisioning of the most ordinary everyday object — a banana, scissors, a twig —into something totally unexpected, charming, and illuminating, like his wondrous Bouquet of Abandoned Ideas, above. He helps us do what we hope Improvise Life does: see new possibilities in the everyday.

Here’s a selection of favorite Niemann images that set the tone for a practice you can do anywhere: what can you SEE in the everyday things around you?

    Must have missed this wonderful post the first time around. Found it on “surprise me” which I think is one of the BEST parts of the website. Thank you, thank you… Ellen

    Ha, I love the Surprise Me too. I’m so glad you use it.
