Try as I might, I can’t stop staring at these intriguing photos by Canadian photographer Todd McLellan. For his Disassembly series, he rounded up old relics from our past – everything from cassette tapes to typewriters – and meticulously took apart every piece by hand before arranging the chaotic mess into neat collections (patience is a virtue, people). The mechanical details of each mundane household item are surprisingly intricate when viewed from this perspective – who would’ve guessed that a simple cassette tape was an engineering marvel? What a beautiful tribute to our retired technology!
