On the edge of graphic design, art and photography Sarah Illenberger creates the series called Wonderplants. The basis for every image is leafs of varying sizes, which she covered with a pattern of stickers that almost looks digitally printed. The idea for these creations came up during a holiday in Portugal where she intended to use only materials that were available in the house she stayed in. Photographed on plain coloured surfaces the plants become beautiful surrealistic objects. Illenberger is known for her use of familiar materials that she transforms into unexpected images. With her work she creates new ways of looking at daily objects.
