Chu Enoki's Futuristic City Made From Old Drill Bits and Machine Parts

You're looking at Japanese artist Chu Enoki's artwork called RPM-1200, a diorama built from junk metal, old drill bits and spare machine parts polished into gleaming, shiny spires of a futuristic city.

The sculpture is actually pretty big, it measured 11 feet tall (3.4 m) and 15 feet (4.6 m) in diameter. As shown below, the details are absolutely fantastic!

Wow! That is awesome!! It must have taken an age to make but its sure worth the effort. I know how annoying all the fiddly little bits can get in power tools smoe how I don't think I would have had the patience to make something like that! Its pure genius! Way to go Mr Chu Enoki! Its really superb :)

That is SOOO Beautifull , I love that city. It is a work of genuis . I was a machinist and i got to see many beautifull "skyscrapers" go to the junkheap. I am so glad to see that finaly someone got the idea to turn it into art. If this was displayed in Cincinatti the public would go crazy. Cincinatti is the machinist capital of the nation. Mr Enoki is a genius.

I used to take my all the nails and tool bits from my dad's toolbox and would build a city. Nice to see someone else had the time to do it as art! :)
