Swedish Artist Michael Johansson has an eye for detail and space, with his “real life tetris” installations, Johansson meticulously places peoples unwanted objects into tight spaces like alleyways, doorways, and even the spacing between two buildings. Too make it even more methodical, Johansson color coordinates most of his objects as he places them on his sculptures. Luckily for Johansson, he can choose a straight piece whenever he pleases. Speaking to PINCH magazine, Johansson said:

“These irregularities, or coincidences, are a great source of inspiration for me. I have also as long as I can remember been fascinated by flea markets. And in specific a fascination by walking around to find doubles of seemingly unique, though often useless objects I have already purchased at another flea market. There is something irresistible in the knowledge that if you don’t buy that particular object right away, the opportunity might never come back. I think the same rules compelling me to select things at flea markets are also central to my art practice, that you need to combine something very familiar with something very unique to create an interesting art experience.”
