Cool Futuristic CityScape Sculpted From Drill Bits

Idle 6

kkleiner writes "Japanese artist Chu Enoki's sculpture, RPM 1200, is a beautiful metallic cityscape made completely out of drill bits that looks like a glistening version of Blade Runner, or maybe even a 21st Century version of the Emerald City of Oz. Every spire is a drill bit that has been re-purposed and polished. It's a beautiful piece of art (and a stunning feat of recycling as well). Check photos of RPM 1200, including a close up shot where you can really see the grooves and shapes of the bits that went into its creation."

Those look more like drill parts, with saw blades mixed in.

At your nearest art college. Seriously - just go down there and walk the hallways one day - you will find this kind of stuff everywhere.

Ok, but it's about 600 km away, it might take a while...
