Joan Steiner :: Look-Alikes

Updated on August 31, 2013

The More You Look, the More You See!

Joan Steiner is an extraordinary artist who uses common household items in an everyday objects in ingenious and unexpected ways. Her 3D art pieces are quite a sight. You can stare at one piece for a long time and constantly see new things in it.

Recently, I was lucky enough to view an exhibit of her art at the New York State Museum. It was certainly quite a sight!

      Clever idea, and just the sort of thing that fascinates kids especially, though I can see why adults love her artworks too. The exhibit must have been a lot of fun.
