A hanging sculpture made of many different materials

Sarah Sze Seamless 1999 © Sarah Sze

In this sculpture called Seamless, Sarah Sze uses everyday items, like a ladder and a bucket. What other everyday objects could you use in your sculpture?

You might not be able to see but she also included a tiny bridge made of matchsticks! She's using two scales - one big and one miniscule. Can you think about the scale of your sculpture? How could you mix two scales?
