These Crazy Coin Stack Sculptures Seem Impossible

By Casey Chan on at

Japanese artist Thumb Tani may have negotiated some deal with how gravity works on Earth for his coin sculptures. Or maybe he is somehow channelling Magneto’s superpowers. No way could be just carefully placing these coins on top of each other, because I struggle with making a penny stand up straight.

The structures are pretty wild with coins stacked, interlocked, and laced together in every imaginable way, sometimes with different objects thrown in to make it look even more ridiculous. [Thumb Tani via The Awesomer]
