Matchstickmen, is an unusual installation created by German artist Wolfgang Stiller. In generally, they are several large-scale burnt matches where the charred remains of each tip appeared as the face of a human. The artist didn’t clearly explain the underlying meaning of this installation, which he wants to to keep it open and leave space for one’s own imagination. For me, these lifeless burning faces in coffin-like matchboxes have hauntingly unsettling references to death and mortality. What do you think about?
Not sure in which place matches still be widely used in the daily life. In my memory, it is a dangerous but attractive game when I was a child. I really enjoy the moment when it lights up and imagine myself is the little girl in the story. However, with the development of technology, I haven’t seen it or used for a long time. I thought it would be eliminated from our life. But apparently, people still loved those old-fashioned tool and just gave it a new birth. Then, we got our today’s topic – 10 Interesting Design Inspired by Matches.
Calendar made of matches [link]
What a creative idea! Calendar made of matches. Designed by Yurko Gutsulyak, each page is a month and it looks like a comb made of matches that correspond to the days. The matches are real and the construction of the calendar is absolutely safe.
Kind of a reminder that time goes really fast… Just like enlightening the match.
