Artist Creates Clay Macarons With Disturbingly Realistic Faces Of Babies

From cake with poppable pimples to shag rugs-lookalike cake to non-edible pot pie with anthropomorphic faces, the world is certainly not lacking of bizarre and sometimes disturbing food, fake or real. Well, it looks like it is not going to stop. It seems like more are being uncovered every now and then, and here’s another by Holland-based Singapore artist by the name Lim Qi Xuan. Lim, also known by the pseudonym Quimmy Shimmy, is the creator of this rather disturbing clay macarons that bear incredibly realistic faces of babies.

This Electroacoustic Installation Looks Straight Out Of 60s’ Sci-Fi Flicks

To be honest, I am clueless about what this electroacoustic installation called Apparatum by PanGenerator is about. All I know are one) it looks awesome and straight out of 60s’ sci-fi flicks and two) it makes analog sounds that sounded as sci-fi-ish as its aesthetic. The Lost In Space vibe is strong here, don’t you think? The contraption is inspired by Polish Radio Experimental Studio, one of the world’s first studio to produce electroacoustic music, but with a slight twist.

Remember how NYC-based artist turned logo belonging to big corporations into dangerous weapons? Well, meanwhile in Japan, designer Taku Oomura of design studio oodesign is using his free time to turn famous brands’ logo into everyday, usable and mostly not dangerous products. Now, you see the stark difference there? It is like the case of making shiny aluminum ball out of regular foil versus the death wish of eating tide pods.

Ogilvy & Mather’s LEGO Campaigns Made Me Want To Buy More LEGO Sets

A Maze: An Artful Play Of Arcade You Have Never Seen Before

What you see here is an arcade machine that is worthy of an art piece. OK. It is an arcade machine per se. It is art first, arcade second and it is not quite the Oh You Ken kind of arcade. This arcade, called “A Maze,” is the work of art by artist Marco Iannicelli and it is very analog. Like 100 percent analog, save for the electric motor that is use to manipulate the 7 concentric rings maze atop. It sits a minimalist frame in black, presumably as a contrast to the star of the show, the maze. Continue reading A Maze: An Artful Play Of Arcade You Have Never Seen Before

5 Tons Plastic Waste Whale Reminds Us Of The World’s Plastic Problem

I heard from a person who had done a short stint as a sailor that they (sailors) had the habit of ditching trash into the sea like nobody’s business. While some trash are easily broken down, plastic takes a hell lot of time, whether or not it was discarded on land or in the sea. Those floating aimlessly on the sea poses great threat the marine lifeforms. Some of them got chomped down by sea creatures, sometimes inadvertently killing the poor creatures.

Artist Turning A Car Into A Pizza Oven Is Just About The Coolest Car Mod

How do you like your pizza? Cooked over actual firewood oven? Or do you prefer pizzas made in an actual firewood car-oven? I am not even joking. Car pizza oven is real, but obviously, you won’t get to have a taste of it, unless you are a friend of French artist Benedetto Bufalino because has turned a real car, a Ford Mondeo (Ford Fusion in the US) into a pizza oven on wheels. Continue reading Artist Turning A Car Into A Pizza Oven Is Just About The Coolest Car Mod

Artist Created A Sloth Costume That Is Life-like, I Thought It Was A Giant Sloth

I can’t think of anyone who love sloth, let alone wanting to dress up as one for any costume party. But here we are, seeing a costume right before our eyes. Yes. This is a sloth costume and it is so life-like that, for a moment, I thought it was a real sloth. I grasped at the size of it. A human-size sloth! Alas, it isn’t a real sloth. It was a costume created by Berlin-based super talented costume designer, sculptor and prop maker Karoline Hinz.

Illustrator Imagines Iconic Star Wars Characters As Insects

Imagine the world of Star Wars being played out by insects (think: Antz). Can you visualized how it would be? Well, you don’t have too. Just take a look at Richard Wilkinson’s works. The illustrator has created a series of realistic insects decorated to look like iconic characters from the Star Wars Universe. Some of them are highly recognizable, like the fly that is actually Darth Vader, while some took a while to register (Wasp Stormtrooper and bug Sand Crawler for examples).
