Mundane scenes and objects are given an extreme neat-over in a strangely captivating series of photographs by Swiss artist Ursus Wehrli.
The Art Of Tidying Up shows what happens when innocuous items like sandpits, bowls of fruit, parked cars and even alphabet soup, are painstakingly deconstructed and re-ordered.
Wehrli previously applied his comical editing skills to the messy world of art, tidying up Vincent Van Gogh's bedroom and bringing order to Pieter Bruegel's chaotic village scene in his books Tidying Up Art (2005) and More Tidying Up Art (2007), which he discusses in the TED video at the bottom of this page.
The visionary artist, who is also an award-winning comedian, cabaret performer and typographer, presents the physical world at its most orderly in his latest work, including dismantling the branch of a pine tree and placing each needle into neat rows.
Take a look at some of the intricate results of his orderly obsession below...
