Extreme Close-Up Images of Everyday Objects Are Beautiful and Unrecognizable

In a new video installment of the Amazing Worlds Within Our World series, artist Pyanek demonstrated that the entire world is like abstract art, in that you can't really tell what anything is from an extreme close-up perspective:

 

 

The pictures are all amazing, although the most interesting might be soap foam, which looks like a crystal structure, a tea bag, which looks something like a caterpillar's cocoon, a kitchen sponge, which resembles a collection of broken cells, and especially the cornflake, which looks less like a cornflake and more like boiled snakeskin:
