Artists have created an entire wall made from flavourful jelly
Your childhood dreams have come true! Here is an entire wall made out of jelly. Designed by artists Lisa Hein and Robert Seng, this creative duo took three whole weeks to construct this wall, with every little bit of the construction performed on-site. And as construction continues on top, lower layers decay and melt out onto the ground, leaving behind a pretty awesome mortar grid. This project uses jelly (of course), as well as gypsum paste and durawall truss to keep the bricks in place. The wall measures 386 cm long by 20cm by ‘increasing height’.
The artists’ work ‘highlights the value of making as an experience in itself, apart from the expectation of a lasting outcome’. That’s a very zen way to describe a jelly wall project!
Travess Smalley takes found vector graphics, prints them on assorted papers and transparencies, stacks and splices them together, and then digitally scans the finished product only to continue the remixing process even further in Photoshop. The result is Vector Weave, a series of large-format vinyl prints.
Vilde J. Rolfsen uses light and colored backgrounds to make these otherworldly plastic bag landscapes. She finds the bags on the street, an easy task considering Americans blow through over 100 billion a year.
Russian woman uses 30,000 bottle caps to make her house pop
Russian Taiga is a secluded Karmarchaga village with one very special exhibit – a story book house completely covered in colored bottle caps. Its owner has kept herself busy collecting bottle caps assiduously over the years. When she has hit the magical number of 30,000, she hammered them all on the exterior walls of her house. And not in any haphazard fashion but carefully arranged in the most aesthetically pleasing of traditional patterns and animal portrayals.
Bottled Food: a series showing us that processed food really is disgusting
‘Bottled Food’ is an eye-opening series by mixed-media artist Tom Davie, wherein he takes processed foods usually found in cans or boxes, and repackages them into glass bottles. Mac & cheese may be heaven when we see it in its usual box, but put it in a transparent container and it’s just sickening. The same goes for potted meat and baked beans, both of which look entirely inedible as they sit there looking like strange alien specimens.
The series exposes everyday consumer items for what they really are, unnatural and unappetizing substitutes for the real thing. Davie gives us a chance to see past the fancy packaging these supermarket items come in and hopefully, change our eating lifestyles in the process. Now, anyone care for baked beans through a straw? Anyone?
Alligator bites down on a $100,000 Hermes crocodile handbag just inches away from Ana Mulvoy-Ten
Tyler Shields, a well-known celebrity photographer believes that indulgence is an idea. So to prove this theory – or to create a buzz or whatever – he set out to photograph a beautiful actress. And that beautiful actress was holding a $100,000 Hermes bag – the famous handbag that has accessory enthusiasts drooling.
But not only did he capture Ana Mulvoy-Ten holding the bag, but he also thought it was a cool idea to get an alligator biting into the crocodile bag. Because nothing is as fun as getting an alligator fired up and ready to eat people than by shoving an over-priced croc bag in its face.
