Some Guy Makes A Batsuit Out Of Tree Bark

Artists make pretty things; we get to look at them, say “gee whiz, look at that”, and then once we’re done, we just move on. That’s what we’re expecting will happen when you read about French artist Christophe Guinet’s work here. It’s a Batman suit made from tree bark, and well, it looks pretty neat-o.

Together with Warner Bros. France and the Splendens Factory, the artist has designed the iconic batman suit primarily out of tree bark, vegetal moss, lichen and fungus. A foam mold of the batman suit and helmet has been carefully wrapped and covered in layers of tree bark, forming the suit’s distinctive pointed ears, opening for the mouth and nose, and defensive shoulder covering.

Why? Apparently it’s Christophe’s thing, to appropriate plant life and create familiar objects. We suppose that in art, that’s as good a reason as any.
