Drift: Magnetic Driftwood Boards

Nov 19, 2014

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Whether it’s a copy of E.T. for the Atari 2600 or Jaguars season tickets, there’s always a piece of coal that someone else sees as gold.

We’ve found a great example of that theory with Drift, a series of magnetic driftwood boards that were found washed up on shores around the world. German-based Hejmonti has collected the boards, planks, poles and dunnage bars, and then takes photographs of where they were found. After drying them out and cleaning them, each unique piece of wood is then branded with the exact latitude and longitude of where it was found. Powerful magnets are then sunk deep into boreholes, so your keys, knives, tools, or other metallic items magically tick to the wood. Sounds like a mini-treasure to us. [Purchase]
