After a successful Kickstarter campaign, British artist Lucy Sparrow took over an abandoned corner space in Bethnal Green, east London, and transformed it into an art installation called The Corner Shop. On display is Sparrow's fabulous handiwork in the form of 4,000 felt items, all hand-sewn. Recognizable brands of quick shop fare are "merchandised" similar to the way they would be in an actual store. The colorful inventory consists of likenesses so well done that from a distance, they might fool the eye. (I wonder if felt canned spaghetti tastes better than the real thing?)
Sparrow's Corner Shop items are all available for purchase online. See more of Sparrow's work at her website. Via Colossal.
