Button Sculptures Look Like They’re Floating in Air

What do you get when you combine fishing line with buttons? Sculptures! That’s what Miami-based artist Augusto Esquivel is doing. He basically arranges different lengths of fishing line in a grid, then carefully strings-in sewing buttons in a variety of different colors to create shapes.

It’s definitely a unique way of creating art. Augusto has created a bunch of different 3D forms, from pianos to flowers. He even made a toilet out of buttons, though you would want to try and use it.

Augusto has been referred to as “The Button Guy”.  He says that he doesn’t count the number of buttons that go into each piece, but my guess is that he uses quite a lot of them.

His sculptures make me wonder if he was inspired by the code of The Matrix, since the fishing lines kind of remind me of the code as it rains vertically down the screen.
