Helga Stentzel creates art from mundane household objects. She says:

To me, household surrealism is about finding magic in the mundane, seeing beauty in imperfections, and connecting to our reality in a new way. I love noticing playful similarities – be it a sweater on a clothing line looking like a horse or a slice of bread resembling a dog’s head. It’s only the starting point though. From this moment onward the stories and visuals start buzzing in my head: What will this horse look like? What’s her name and character? Does she like racing with other horses? – the list goes on and on!

Take inspiration from Helga’s work and create some household surrealism by putting together some everyday objects in a humorous, or provocative grouping and share the results in a photo or picture.
