  • So you think you are neat? You think you'll go to extremes to defend your love of tidiness and ensure everything is perfectly organised? Well, Ursus Wehrli might raise the bar a little bit...

    The modern world can get messy. Fortunately, Swiss artist Ursus Wehrli is a man of obsessive order, as he demonstrates with eye-catching surprise in The Art of Clean Up. Tapping into the desire for organization and the insanity of uber-order, Wehrli humorously categorizes everyday objects and situations by color, size, and shape. He arranges alphabet soup into alphabetical order, sorts the night sky by star size, and aligns sunbathers' accoutrements -- all captured in bright photographs sure to astonish even the pickiest of neat freaks.
