Container art

I find this facinating, not only from the perspective of art but also math.

Great work, Michael Johansson. Haven't you thought about this - how much can you fit into a specific scale and also keep it upright, without falling over?  It is just that Michael works on a larger scale than we usually imagine (not the three stories in the building behind the art.). I think the Volvo cars are great for this purpose, due to their particular angular shapes. Fantastic work! It is well worth your time to check out his website.
