Video of the Day: Famous Buildings Rebuilt with Everyday Objects

In Luis Urculo’s video project “Covers,” he whimsically recreates iconic buildings using everyday objects like books, flatware, matchboxes and cassette tapes. The project, he writes, “is an investigation about architecture as a consumption object or souvenir and its relation with the domestic non-specialized language of everyday things… The concept is based on the music covers where the original is manipulated, re-represented, revisited to create something new.” We had fun guessing which buildings were being constructed as the books — or tapes, or dishes — went up, and we have to say there was at least one stroke of waterfall-related genius that we weren’t expecting. Click through to watch the video, and then be sure to check out Urculo’s blog and website for even more inspiration.
