Inspiring: Mikhail Gubin and his collage sculptures

There is something particularly magnetic and consuming in these bundles of almost-random shapes, shades, lines, planes and textures. I am not sure what it is, but I find them all instantly appealing. Soothing to look at. Beautiful. Not unlike a chaldron from Jonathan Lethem's great novel Chronic City.
If I had a sculpture like that at home I would no doubt just stare at it in a relaxed yet curious fashion for hours at a time... Watch as it changes over the course of the day with the play of light and shadows.

Also, it looks like they are made of trash.
Go trash!!!
