Mehmet Ali Uysal is an artist and teacher who recently installed a gigantic clothespin into the ground near the town of Liège, Belgium. The clothespin was installed for the Festival of Five Seasons, an art festival featuring massive outdoor installations.

The most impressive part of Mehmet Ali Uysal's installation is the way the clothespin still manages to do its job despite its size. The 20-foot tall clothespin is still pinching stuff together, albeit soil instead of clothing.
