From the Busy Beaver Button Co. blog:
“Creative director Tereasa Surratt commissioned Nilsen to create a mural for her family’s home after seeing his massive 10,000 button installation at Ogilvy & Mather. Surratt’s home has a very distinct, modern look— it has been featured in Dwell magazine— so she wanted an equally unconventional way to display family photos and mementos.
A selection of family photos and textures from family heirlooms were used to produce 984 custom buttons. Six generations are represented in the mural in a variety of shapes and sizes.”
