It’s bad enough having to swat away a single bug, but an entire swarm? If you’re anywhere near the Missouri River that’s just something you might have to contend with – these “bugnadoes” form in areas with high volumes of water, particularly after flooding has occurred.
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.
If Andy Warhol were alive today, how would he react to modern culture? The iconic artist, who died in 1987 at age 58, would probably flip for internet microcelebrities on sites like YouTube, which affirms his “15 minutes of fame” theory.
To commemorate Warhol’s 83rd birthday this past Saturday, artist Edgar Askelovic created a sculpture that imagines what he would have looked like had he lived to see 2011.
For those who spend tons of time of Facebook, the real world can feel like a foreign place: How can you know if that cute girl at the bar is single without a relationship status? How to remember the name of that guy from high school if he hasn’t been helpfully tagged? And how does one share an opinion on a clever magazine article or cool piece of art without a “like” button? Happily, liking things in real life just got a whole lot easier with Jailbreak Collective’s set of Like/Dislike stamps.
A drastic haircut can be a traumatizing experience. But what if you could get your old look back in a snap?
Tom Offer Westort and his friend Peter Simon got inspired by Tom’s decision to shear off all his head and facial hair and created this clever stop-motion video in which his extreme haircut is shown in reverse. Watch Tom go from totally bald and clean-shaven to his old shaggy-haired self in 30 seconds.
There’s nothing better than a nice ice cream cone on a hot midsummer day — unless, of course, it’s made from scoops of raw ground beef. Sweet Meat, a succulent new project by artist Jasmin Schuller, transforms meat products into deceptively yummy-looking goodies, like slices of cake, popsicles and petits fours.
While scientists have yet to perfect artificial intelligence, they’ve at least perfected artificial beer preference. When it comes to brewskies, this thirsty robot named DARwIn-OP know what it likes — the folks who built him over at Trossen Robotics actually programmed him to have a drink of choice. Given the option, the little guy will ignore a can of Bud Light and go for a cold Tecate every time.
It could have something to do with the colors of their respective cans, but we like to think DARwIn’s just got fond memories of a robo-bender in Mexico.
