These Instant Noodle Warrior Sculptures Deserved To Be A Cartoon

I am not sure if you will still love consuming Japanese instant noodle after seeing Taishi Arimura’s Instant Noodle Warrior Sculptures. What this young graphic designer from Tokyo did was, he weaved a person out of fake noodles and then sprucing up each figure with armor of sort using actual instant noodle Styrofoam packaging to result in strangely attractive ‘noodle warriors’. Final touch to each of these ‘noodle warriors’ includes equipping each with a weapon of either single use fork or chopsticks (there’s one with what appeared to be an egg-based food as its shield).

Here’s A Look At Street Artist RISK’s Massive Scraps-made Shark Sculpture

Modern day legendary street artist RISK continues to surprise and wow audience with this impressive shark sculpture. It does not have a name yet, or at least not that we know of. This work of art here, seen hanging in RISK’s undisclosed studio, is made up of countless scrap materials and it is HUGE. Anyways, RISK, as he explain on his Instagram page, is inspired by the various who did the same before him. He felt the need to carry on the torch lit by the people who did the same.

Persian Rug Animal Sculptures: Where Animals Emerged From Persian Rugs

Have you ever ‘seen’ images in pattern, textured walls and floors? I am sure some of us have sometimes and so does British sculptor Debbie Lawson. Lawson not only see images, but she turn what she thought she may seen into sculptures that are incredibly surreal and mind-blowing. This particular series is related to animals and old style Persian rugs (she has experimented with other materials too). OK. Maybe they are mostly bears and old-fashioned rugs, really.

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

Japanese Designer Turn Company Logos Into Everyday Usable Items

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

It is probably just me, but in all seriousness, you can’t deny these images of LEGO will make you adore this world’s famous brick all over again.

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.
