Genius is Tara Donovan.

To me artistic genius is when an artist creates something that seems so obvious you wonder why it's never been done before–but knowing it never would have existed had the artist not thought of it. By this definition, Tara Donovan is a genius. She takes such obvious nothings and, by using them in bulk, creates ethereal, unbelievable works of art.
