Japanese street artist Jun Kitagawa uses zippers, both painted and sculpted, to playfully suggest the idea that our surroundings are merely a surface layer that can be peeled back so we may explore whatever lies beneath.

"One of his most fascinating works are an ongoing series in which he installs 3-dimensional zippers in various public spaces around Japan, offering an intimate look – one that’s often left up to the imagination – into our world. “I like to surprise people with a light eroticism,”* explains Kitagawa in a statement."
So what do you think, if you happened upon a giant zipper on a wall, street, or even a lake, would you go head and unzip it? You never know what sorts of awesomeness might be on the other side.
