The paint brushes that fooled me
Dominic Wilcox created these paint brush coat hooks.

I see some paint brushes hanging on the wall.

Then I realize they’re actually coat hooks.

That’s interesting, I said, someone made coat hooks that look like paint brushes.

No, that’s not right. I look closer. They really are paint brushes. He just stiffened the bristles so they could act like coat hooks.

Mr. Wilcox used these as part of an exhibition where the idea was to "take an everyday object, remould, rebuild and repurpose it to create an entirely new item, using as little additional materials as possible."
