Liza Lou's Beaded Kitchen And Backyard

South Africa-based artist Liza Lou spent five years and millions of beads creating her kitchen and backyard installations.
Every element in her life-size kitchen is covered in millions of hand-glued glass beads, which she applied with a set of tweezers.
Every surface is covered with beads, from dirty dishes in a sink to a pie to a bag of Lays!

For her backyard project,she used over thirty million beads! Most of them went into creating 250,000 blades of grass around the picnic table.

    I was fortunate enough to see this installment at the Minneapolis Institute of Art a while back and it was absolutely amazing. I stood there and looked at everything for over an hour. I can't fathom the patience and attention to detail something like this would take to complete. Love it! Thanks for reminding me of something fun!
