Cherry Blossom Made of Thousands of Buttons, Beads, and Pins

By using a seemingly infinite number of buttons, beads, and pins, Brooklyn-based Korean artist Ran Hwang successfully create a vignette of cherry blossoms. Like a monk who, facing the wall, practices Zen, Hwang repetitively fixes hundreds of beads and buttons in floral compositions then proceeds to hammer them to a backboard or wall. When you look up close, the amount of individual buttons is somewhat overwhelming, but from afar, they are beautifully assembled cherry bloosom. No matter how many times I saw it, I always be amazed by the amount of time and patience needed to create work like that.
