If I were an ice sculptor, a talented ice sculptor, I don’t know how high on the list I’d put “carve a giant autobot” – but having seen this, it’d be up there.
These aren’t toys. Though they look like it. No. These are art.
This one is called “Leopard with Wilderbeest”
Apparently this is how springbucks “court”
This one is my favourite…
There are more at the sculptor (or knitter?), Jennifer Muskopf’s site.
This is a cool sculpture. Created by artist Caleb Larsen, it is set up to perpetually sell itself on eBay.
Every ten minutes the black box pings a server on the internet via the ethernet connection to check if it is for sale on the eBay. If its auction has ended or it has sold, it automatically creates a new auction of itself.
If a person buys it on eBay, the current owner is required to send it to the new owner. The new owner must then plug it into ethernet, and the cycle repeats itself.
Art made from rubbish. How droll.
Actually, this is exceptionally clever…
“Six months’ worth of household waste plus a pair of dead seagulls comprise the heap of refuse. It’s no accident that it took the couple a further six months to make the piece, during which time they were eating and consuming – as you do. On the wall, the shadow figure self-portraits of the artists take a break with a cigarette and a glass of wine.”
There are a few more amazing shadow pieces at that link.
These photos of piles of rubbish are also pretty amazing… more for the vast quantity than for clever creative endeavour.
