James Hopkins' Vanitas Collection Turns Ordinary Objects into Extraordinary Art

By: Shelby Lee Walsh - Published: Jan 6, 2010 • References: jameshopkinsworks
James Hopkins' Vanitas collection consists of a series of meticulously placed everyday items on shelves to create abstract skulls. Using ordinary items one might put on their shelves anyways, Hopkins uses clocks, books, CDs, mirrors, instruments, etc. to create her skulled shelving.

I must say that the Vanitas collection is an intriguing one. Although I wouldn't want to (nor have the time to) set up my belongings to look this neat from afar, one has to give credit to the vision that Hopkins is capable of creating out of ordinary objects.
