This topographical carpet by Laurens van Wieringen is comprised of hundreds of foam bars in varying shades and heights. Van Wieringen and 29 of her friends worked together on the massive project, and the finished effect is a pixelated 3D treat.

We've seen several interior decor designs that leverage maps and topography as Laurens van Wieringen has done for art that is informative and functional. See some of my favorites below.

Implications - The incredible vision and diligence in a work like this is truly mind blowing for the average viewer. Creatively stylish, practical and so colorful it would make a prison ell look homey, Van Wieringen's carpet is truly one of a kind and a must have for lovers of topography, detail and art.
