Finnish installation artist Kaarina Kaikkonen creates art using, of all things, second-hand clothing. Her impressive large-scale installations explore symmetry and color in some really interesting ways. Her latest work, Are We Still Going On?, involves hundreds of children’s shirts hung in rows, meant to resemble the interior framework of a giant ship.

    Gorgeous! I loved seeing the heads poking up between lines of shirts and the slightly bewildered (or amazed) expressions on faces.
