These licorice portraits look good enough to eat. Artist Jason Mercier is known for his celebrity mosaics made of candy, food, pills and make up and even celebrity’s own junk. For his latest project, called ‘Licorice Flix: Edible Movie Mosaics,’ he took scenes from some of his favorite movies and recreated them with pieces of black and red licorice in startling detail.
What if, instead of being bitten by a radioactive spider that gave him superhuman abilities, Spiderman was just some regular powerless guy who dressed up in a red and blue costume with silly string cans? Of course, since he wouldn’t be able to fight crime, he would have to wreak havoc on the unassuming citizenry.
It’s not just a funny title — ‘The Worst Movie EVER’ might actually be the worst movie ever. After opening in one theater in Los Angeles, the movie grossed $11, making it the lowest grossing film of all time.
How would you react if a painting suddenly came to life? Alexa Meade‘s painted people look like works of art but move like humans — making for an eerie sight.
Whereas most artists would just paint their subjects on a canvas, Meade actually turns her subjects INTO the canvas. She creates life-size installations that are shockingly exact in their similarity to actual acrylic paintings. Upon first glance it’s almost impossible to tell that there are real people under all that paint.
Remember those connect-the-dot pictures from your childhood? Multiply that by about 6,000 and you get artist Thomas Pavitte‘s incredible new project that just might be the single most complex connect-the-dots image ever. Not only did he design the illustration, he connected the 6,293 dots himself. It took Pavitte nine hours to connect them all, revealing a legendary masterpiece as you’ve never seen it before.
Artist Curtis Kilhorn is making it his mission to restore beauty to dead trees in the Colorado wilderness. Kilhorn paints their remains in a rainbow of bright colors, turning a dried-up tree skeleton into a technicolor conversation piece, and will install his creations in customers’ backyards. He says the intention of the installations is to remind people “of the splendor of the world around us” but we think it’s a righteous way to recycle. Mother Nature would be proud.
John Taylor secured his rightful spot in metal heaven when he recently broke the record for world’s fastest guitar playing. He clocked in at at 600 BPM (Beats Per Minute), almost twice the speed of the original record holder, Tiago Della Vega.
Depending on their surroundings, some trees grow abnormally, with their trunk and branches conforming to nearby debris or blockages.
Former jeweler Peter “Pook” Cook has perfected a process to replicate this himself and actually “sculpt” growing trees into specific formations. Cook began doing this in the late 80s, inspired by fig trees growing on a cliff face. It took him years to refine the method, but the Australian now turns trees into unnatural but indeniably cool shapes, including eerie, human-like figures.
How many times have you wrestled with one of those unwieldy packing tape rollers when boxing things up to move or to put in storage? Unless you maneuver it just right, the tape won’t stay straight and winds up twisting over itself into a useless, tangled ball of frustration.
Artists Sven Jonke, Cristoph Katzler and Nikola Radeljkovic have taken this sticky situation and turned it into a work of art, creating the massive, interactive packing tape installation Numen/For Use.
The DayGlo-like effects in ‘Mundo Neon,’ a highly stylized commercial for Colombian yogurt company Bon Yurt, go way beyond the average glowstick.
In the two-minute spot, a group of people in white jumpsuits are shown setting up an elaborate series of tubes, electronics, blenders and glowsticks. It starts off calm, but once the lights go off, the neon starts glowing, the blenders start spinning and the real fun begins.
On July 16, New York’s Rockefeller Park was lit up like a Christmas tree when over 3,500 people converged for Improv Everywhere’s latest MP3 Experiment. The popular series of “missions,” as IE calls its stunts, asks participants to download an MP3 file, gather in one spot, hit play at the same time and follow the audio instructions for an awesome effect.
The eighth installment in the MP3 mission series included activities with flashlights and glowsticks, giving the phrase “flash mob” an entirely new meaning. Check out video of the mission below:
