The frustrating sculptures of Fabian Burgy, an artist and digital creative born and based in Switzerland, takes objects with purpose and tweaks them so that they cannot be used in familiar ways anymore. Or used at all, in some cases. Comprised of a spoon with a hole in the middle, a swing weighed down by a concrete clock and a metronome with a sharp sickle attached to it, the changes to these frustrating sculptures are subtle yet suspenseful.

The frustrating sculptures were created with a "slightly violent and disturbing process of transformation, misplacement and dysfunction of things" in mind. Yet it is clear that the true intention behind each of the frustrating sculptures is one of playfulness. In the end, people will get a good laugh out of these surreal creations.
