Architecture Student Converts Old Bus into Comfy Mobile Home Complete with Repurposed Gym Floor
Architecture student Hank Butitta was tired of creating imaginary buildings for clients that didn't exist.

It isn't always easy to get kids interested in art, but Torafu Architects may have found a pretty novel approach at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo.

Completed by artist Justin Gershenson-Gates earlier this month, these incredibly intricate sculptures were created almost exclusively from repurposed watch parts. The Demonfly Watch Part Assemblage (left) is composed of winding stems, strap springs, watch plates, an a blue christmas light bulb. Uniquely, the Demonfly's arms swivel to give the sculpture the appearance of preparing for an attack or fleeing. The Hornet Watch Assemblage (right), measuring just 42mm x 49mm, features a tiny flashlight bulb abdomen and cut and sanded watch faces for wings.
