The work of Chinese artist Wang Zhiyuan turns our attention to the overlooked and discarded.  Whether he is using garbage to make art or making art look like garbage Zhiyuan’s art attempts to draw out a double take, a second slower look.  Zhiyuan has also created giant pairs of underwear – some of huge swaths of fabric others carefully carved.  Some seem like large and ancient bronze panties adorned with a relief addressing the AIDS pandemic.  He’s also made use of refuse to create a dizzyingly high tower stretching to be nearly four stories tall.  He says of the project:

“I thought it would be difficult to make these dead objects interesting or beautiful.  But I discovered that if you bring order to them, you can create beauty.”[via]
