Not Quite So Super: Superhero Poop

Spiderman Poop

Art is subjective. One man’s trash is another one’s treasure. Both statements apply in the case of this collection of Superhero Poop by Antonis Art Asylum. There’s nothing super or heroic about the polymer clay poop, other than the fact that they look like the costumes that the pooper (in this case, the superheroes) wear when they’re in action.

Each piece of poop is handmade and, as its maker proudly claims, no two are alike, “just like real poop.”

Surreal Lighting: Gummy Bear Chandelier

Gummy Bear Chandelier0

 

The Jello Candelier aka the Gummy Bear chandelier is every child’s dream, save for the fact that it’s made from acrylic gummy bears and is, hence, inedible. That aside, it’s an impressive display and will add a splash of color and a bit of whimsy to whatever room it’s installed in. With the flick of a switch, the chandelier will emit a colorful yet subtle glow.

If you think about it, you actually get the best of both worlds with the chandelier: you get a gorgeous assortment of gummy bears–minus the ants!Continue Reading

Go Bear in the Wilderness: Sleeping Bear Bag

Bear Sleeping Bag

You might’ve heard about French artist Abraham Poincheval and how he spent 13 days living inside a taxidermy bear for his performance art piece. Now you can sort of do the same with the Sleeping Bear Bag by artist Eiko Ishizawa, who first debuted it back in 2007. Now seven years down the line, the sleeping bag is now available for purchase, although only seven of them will be available.

You won’t be able to live inside it, but you can sleep in it and it looks way more comfortable than Abraham’s living quarters. The entire sleeping bag is handmade from its fake nose and fake teeth.

Drunk for Justice: Justice League Beers

Justice League Beer

Ever wondered what superheroes did to unwind? They probably went out on trips or pretended to be mere civilians for a change. Or they could be huge beer fans and brew booze whenever they get the chance…or not.

These Justice League-inspired beer bottle designs were created by graphic designer Marcelo Rizzetto. Each one features a superhero’s iconic logo and is given an appropriate name, based on who inspired them. For example, Batman’s is dark ale beer with his bat logo splashed across the bottle, while Superman’s is pale lager that’s dubbed “Super Strong Beer.”Continue Reading

This Business Card Doubles As A Ring Sizer

Business Card - Ring Measure

The road to the perfect proposal is a tough one. But before you drop down to one knee, there’s the matter of getting the ring made. Obviously asking for your significant other’s ring size gives everything away, so German ring maker Marrying and ad agency Jung von Matt/Alster teamed up to created the Ring Stick.

It looks like a business card, so you can carry it around 24/7 without raising suspicion while waiting for the opportunity to roll it around her finger so you can get her ring size. Continue Reading

Only For the Gutsy: Blood and Guts Tent

Blood and Guts Tent

This tent by artist Andre Hasler wins the award for World’s Goriest Tent, hands-down. Even people who would normally opt for comfort and protection from the great outdoors would probably opt to sleep outside of it, because it’s really too grotesque for words. You could say it’s literally a pile of raw, bloody, gunky-looking goo.

Well, that and the fact that it’s made from sculpted fiber glass that’s coated with wax, because what’s the point in freaking yourself out if it isn’t comfortable at all? Hit the break for more pics of the tent.

Big Bloom Vase For When Your Rose Is Just Too Small

Big_Bloom_Vase

This has been around since 2009, but we just stumbled on it today. Talk about cutting edge! Anyway, the Big Bloom Vase is a creation of Charlie Guda and his work (though we’re not sure if that includes this vase) was featured at the Museum Of Modern Art as part of the exhibition called Design and the Elastic Mind. The Big Bloom Vase features a Fresnel lens placed in front of a test tube, both of which are connected by a rod. This allows you to magnify the appearance of the flower placed in the test tube, and simultaneously amplify the amount of love it is meant to represent. Because everyone knows bigger is better and only the biggest flowers represent true love. Or something. Right?

Yeah. I failed art class.

But you can own this for $40.

Rockin’ Bricks: 20 Famous Bands Recreated In LEGO

LEGO Bands

Adly has recently unveiled a gallery of twenty iconic bands recreated using nothing but LEGO bricks, including the likes of the Beastie Boys, Beatles, Smashing Pumpkins, and Foo Fighters.Continue Reading

Look Closer: This Parrot is Actually a Woman

Bodypainted Parrot Lady

 

Not everything is at it seems. The title of this post isn’t meant to fool you, but unless you’ve got a really sharp eye, then you probably think you’ve been had because the picture is clearly that of a bird, not a woman–or is it?

It honestly took me a few minutes and several double-takes before I saw her. It’s so seamless that it’s easy to un-see even when you’ve already seen her. This work of impressive body painting art was done by artist Johannes Stoette, who’s eye for detail is truly something else. If you still haven’t spotted her, here’s a hint: check out the parrot’s tail first.
