Artist Mandy Smith uses the rough product to craft realistic, 3D renderings of mundane items like a bra and a bike.

Sculptural artist Mandy Smith creates feats of wonder out of plain paper. For her latest project, she took on a more abrasive material – sandpaper – to create everyday objects out of the rough stuff. The sandpaper creates a sense of discomfort when viewing objects that we would normally consider to be quite comfortable.

Photographer Bruno Drummond took pictures of the seemingly mundane miniature sculptures and the still lifes are surprisingly unsettling. The longer a viewer stares at the items, the more they can imagine the painful and uncomfortable feeling of sandpaper across their skin. The idea of a wiping with a roll of stiff, granular toilet paper is sure to send shivers down one’s spine.
