Magic carpet.

I am completely fascinated by people whose vision lies so far, far outside the proverbial box. I've previously shared my enchantment with dresses made entirely of balloons, the teeniest, tiniest pencil sculptures you've ever seen, and Mila the mom / photographer / set designer

My imagination simply pales in comparison. As do most, I suppose. 

Though my talents are more conventional (errrr, or lacking), I am endlessly attracted to ideas which require an openness of which I am simply not capable. I am absolutely amazed that some people pick up a box of plastic forks and see something other than disposable utensils. I've made a pasta necklace before, but really, I don't think that is pushing the envelope.  

But this, my friends, pushes the envelope in an entirely new and unexpected way:  temporary contemporary carpets by We Make Carpets

Without a sketch or plan (except for the chosen material) designers Stijn van der Vleuten and Marcia Nolte and visual artist Bob Waardenburg start working on the carpet, resulting in a concentrated process of laying the materials one by one untill the finished carpet appears.
