Miami-based artist Augusto Esquivel designed these incredible fun fair-inspired button sculptures from hanging strips. His latest work has a strong festival theme, which can also be observed through his previous artworks encompassing balloons, candy stations and unicycle sculptures. The artist explores the illusions of an intricate reality, which he portrays in his art form as sculptures that can be distorted with a flick of a finger.

This time-consuming and vibrantly colorful work comes together with each individual string, working in unison with each other to create the intended illusion of an object.

Esquivel's overall vision is explained when he says, "I am often obsessed with comparisons of reality and potential and the balance between them, in art: the idea of chaos in perfect order: an object seemingly solid to the eye can also be fragile and inconsistent to the touch."
