Visual artist David Trautrimas’ latest solo exhibition titled ‘Habitat Machines’ opens at LE Galllery in Toronto this month. He creates these fantastic architectural images from dismantled household appliances.

The parts are individually photographed and then reassembled using what the artist calls a "hyper-collage" method.  Trautrimas ‘buildings’ are modern, slightly space-age looking condos with cool names like "Razor Cooperative, "Iron Heights" and "Mixer Mews".  He has used components from appliances such as vacuum cleaners, coffee pots, old shavers, space heaters and irons. See if you can make out what the various structures started out life as.
