Everyday Objects turned into Playful Images by Christoph Niemann (11 Pictures)

As a creative Neimann is constantly pushing himself to think about things differently. This is why he dedicates time out of his week to work on a personal blog, Abstract Sunday—now hosted by the New York Times. In this project he picks up objects at random and attempts to integrate them into a drawing to give them a new perspective. The Impertinent Collection with museum adaptations are also inspiring.

The ComD 2016 team created Niemann inspired entries. The objective was to practice flexing creative muscles and to transform the object and share the results here. Enjoy!
