Ted Mikulski is a Connecticut-based artist who gives tweets a physical form in his Tweets in Real Life. Tweets in Real Life is filled with random tweets -- that were probably considered nothing special by their authors at their time of creation -- becoming works of art, thanks to some clever placement.

They say that the world is your canvas. That couldn't be truer in Tweets in Real Life. What I really like about this project is that Mikulski didn't spend a lot of time drawing or painting clever images to match these tweets. Instead he just went outside and taped the tweets to scenes, creating a sensible and occasionally ironic scene.
