Love the ethereal quality of these installation pieces by Swiss artists Gerda Steiner and Jörg Lenzlinger.

Some of the components used in their art: Plastic berries (India), cow pads (Jura), waste paper (Venice), baobab seeds (Australia), beech, elder and magnolia branches (Uster), thorns (Almeria), pigs’ teeth (Indonesia), seaweed (Seoul), orange peel (Migros shop), fertilizer crystals (home grown), pigeons’ bones (San Staë), silk buds (Stockholm), rubber snakes (Cincinnati)...
