I love the originality of this installation by New York-based artist Naoko Ito. After sawing a tree branch into small pieces, she places the individual pieces into different sized jars. Once complete, she stacks up all the jars to recreate the orignal form of the branch, giving us the illusion that it's still in one piece.
