Tara Donovan: Untitled is currently on at the Pace Gallery in California. The artist has explored surreal environments that take inspiration from both this world and fantasy.

Many of Donovan's pieces look like bacterial growths placed under a microscope. One item consists of what appears to be large cotton balls, but could also be interpreted as a close-up version of a virus. Conversely, the artist also explores topographies, with one piece looking like small mountainous structures. According to DesignBoom, "Untitled demonstrates the range of her single-material structures built from the repetitive application of mylar, acrylic, film, glass, buttons, toothpicks, pins, pencils and drinking straws."

It's quite impressive to see the results of what can be built with such everyday items.
