Simon Gerbaud has transformed a set of objects into dust in order to examine their inner workings. Most of the time people don't think what goes into making a computer or a hairdryer, and this project aims to make people see certain items in a different light.

To capture this entire process, Simon Gerbaud put together a stop motion video to show just how much detail is in certain items. To do this he would pair away at an object, stop and take a photo, then repeat this process until the item was nothing more than a pile of dust.

Hopefully people will think twice about what goes into making material objects after watching this video.
