Yuken Teruya Creates Miniature Tree Sculptures to Go

Japanese artist Yuken Teruya has done it again with another fast food sculpture entitled 'Notice-Forest,' which uses a McDonald's take out bag to create an extremely intricate miniature tree.

The take out bag is from McDonald’s current Olympic campaign and what Yuken Teruya has done is cut out holes in the bag and used them to create this magnificent piece of art. Once the bag is placed on its side, light shines through the bag and almost illuminates the tree in such a way that it looks real. An interesting note is that you can still make out the words “USA” in the tree leaves.

Yuken has done similar miniature artwork like this before using fast food take-away bags to create tree sculptures. Notice-Forest will be on display at David B. Smith’s group show in Denver, Colarado until September 1st 2012. Stats for Fast Food Forest Installations (UPDATE) Trending: Older & Warm
