Many everyday objects hold great secrets inside their bodies and dismantling them is just one way to uncover them. Laurin Döpfner put together in interesting project where he documents the process of sanding down wooden logs, electronics, and even a nut.
Every GIF in the collection consists of about 100 pictures, each of which was taken after every layer of an object is taken off. It is sad to a camera being destroyed by the industrial sander, but in a certain way it is a truly remarkable scene to observe. The sand devours the material and after a moment gives it back only to devour it again a few seconds later.
It goes without saying that the artist put a lot of work into every GIF. Stitching together almost a hundred of photographs is not an easy task, however the result is simply outstanding. Make sure to check out the video below too as it offers a good look at even more everyday objects unveiling their secrets layer by layer.

Over time, you may become uninspired, dull, or even bored with your profession. This is a common problem for a lot of designers, developers, or really any person.
It is not hard to overcome. With some simple tips to get new ideas, you could beback to work, and fully motivated within minutes. All it takes is the right push to get you going and strike the creativity jackpot.
1. Collaboration I don’t know about you, but whenever I start working with friends or colleagues, I am always twice as motivated. Having a person to push you, and set the bar high, makes me think better. It gives me the motivation I need to keep working. I am also more excited when working with a group, and this leads to bigger, and better ideas.
2. Vacation As much as working extra might help you, it could potentially hurt you as well. During vacation, take time to read a good book, keep a pad around with a pen, and maybe bring your iphone or tablet. Try to stay away from the computer though. By switching it up, you can get better ideas, and keep your mind working in fresh, new ways. I always get some good ideas when reading and relaxing on vacation.
3. News & Events By keeping up with the current news, events, and industry happenings, you can see all the great things happening in your profession. This always leads to inspiration and new ideas. If it does’t, do something about it. Why not make the news with your next big idea?
4. Dialogue Dialogue is a great way to express your opinions and argue with others in a controlled manner. By arguing and debating a topic, it will help you see multiple points of view to certain ideas, and can help you see the bigger picture. Conversation is a great way to discuss new ideas.
5. Travel If you are too busy to travel, or aren’t in a position to, remember even going for a walk or a hike is perfect. Travelling, whether it be to a foreign destination, or a near by location can lead to new inspiration. The slightest of things will refresh your mind. Sometimes just going outside can clear the mind.
6. Writing Writing is one way I get ideas quickly. There are times when I will get started writing, and the page’s just keep turning. At times ideas flow out like a river. Never pass up the opportunity to write an idea or story or thought down. Visually, it is easier to keep it, than try and remember it for a time.
7. Hobbies Starting a new hobby is a great way to get some inspiration. It challenges you to work on new projects and gives you a different outlook on how to solve certain problems. Whenever I take on a new hobby, I research, take notes, and read a lot, this is sure to get some ideas flowing.
For example when learning a little bit about taking good minimal photographs I was able to get some ideas that translated into my graphic design work, and vice-versa now that I do a bit of both.
8. Challenges Setting challenges or goals for yourself is a great way to keep yourself thinking. While challenges are tough, they give you a certain problem solving skill that always leads to new inspiration and creative thinking.
9. Videos You may be thinking that Youtube or Vimeo videos are less inspirational, and more time-wasting. At first I thought the same thing, but upon further search I discovered some great videos that are not only inspiring, but inspirational.
Some great examples are Ted Talks, which is an epic source of speeches and truly thought convoking presentations, and Vsauce, which is a great youtube channel with funny and interesting, but informative videos about some common questions.
10. BoredomThe last way I find my ideas is by complete boredom. I don’t just mean taking a break from the phone, or sitting and reading a book. I mean literally a state of nothing. No distractions, no music, no noise for that matter, not even anything close to distract you. Complete boredom is when we really clear our minds and start thinking.
It leads to creativity and creative thinking, and will surely help you on your quest for ideas and fresh thoughts.
Knolling is a unique way of taking photos of similar objects in a cool manner. The actual definition of knolling is “the process of arranging like objects in parallel or 90 degree angles as a method of organization”. I personally love knolling and have seen some great examples of knolling photography on the web recently.
