The North American artist Kevin Van Aelst has an incredible imagination and a great ability for finding the hidden extraordinary side of ordinary things. Aelst transforms, rearranges and reassembles everyday objects into ingenious installations.

Each piece is a visual re-interpretation that forces the viewer to change their understanding of the objects presented and see them from a new point of view. Aelst looks to create order where there is normally randomness, creating new forms, patterns and illustrations.

The seemingly mundane objects, whose meaning we often take for granted, become tools he then uses to communicate more complex ideas. Each photograph and construction show just how far his imagination can wander and open up a new world of possibilities.
