Beautiful Toilet Paper? Re-Imagining Everyday Objects

Yes, you are looking at beautiful sculptures made from toilet paper. Sakir Gökcebag, a Turkish artist based in Germany, often creates his work out of commonplace objects and in this case he has taken the everyday roll of toilet paper and created delicate designs by draping the ribbons of the (hopefully) soft quilted paper.

With household objects working as his unusual medium, Gökcebag’s pieces often result from a close observation of their form and function. He then arranges multiples of the object, playing with their intrinsic qualities to create repetitive geometric patterns which are truly captivating. The normality of the object is quickly overcome by the creative and often beautiful ways in which we see them arranged. It’s a perfect example of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts.
