An average person would most likely come up with two possible uses for a toilet paper roll: first one being the very private one, and the second one – a high school TP prank. In this case, allow us to introduce you to Sakir Gökcebag, a Hamburg-based Turkish artist, and his Trans-Layers installations, made out of hundreds of toilet paper rolls that drape down the walls creating beautiful patterns.
It’s not the first time Sakir uses unusual art mediums. Previously, he has used such commonplace objects as clocks, brooms, umbrellas and such. The artist usually develops an idea for an installation after close observation of the object’s function and form. The use of its intrinsic qualities is what creates this element of simplicity and surprise. Turns out, almost anything can have undiscovered artistic potential!
