Taiwanese artist Chen Chun-Hao had been using thumbtacks as his medium of choice in creating sculptures, wall pieces and installations for over a decade. In the past couple of years he departed from thumbtacks and shifted to nails. More specifically “mosquito nails”— small headless pins about a third the size of a toothpick. Using a nail gun, Chen nails these small pins into canvas-covered wood, creating reproductions of traditional Chinese ink landscape paintings.

No wonder life has got so complicated when we look into nature and even see our chaos there! I suspect its a reason why landscaping your life works - because it connects us back to the simplicity and yet profoundness of nature. Fantastic picture.
