There are some pretty terrible chat-up lines out there, the worst of which is perhaps: ‘Hi, is your father a thief? Because he stole the stars and put them in your eyes’. Us regular fellows couldn’t ever hope to have an iota of success with any of these pre-written one-liners that seem to guarantee that you end your night with a rum and coke being upended over your head.
Good news, pervs! Technology has finally advanced to the point that it can now get you a smokin’, hot girlfriend. The catch: she can’t love you back – emotionally, at least. The ladies you see below are not real women, they’re sex dolls! They’re manufactured by Japanese company, Orient Industry, who says that doll owners might mistake them as real people at first glance.
It seems Mary Schmich, via Baz Luhrmann, was right all those years ago when she famously stated in Everybody’s Free (To Wear Sunscreen): ‘Ladies and Gentlemen of the class of ’99; If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it‘. Thomas Leveritt has opened all our eyes again to the damaging effects of the sun on our unprotected skin by getting strangers to stand in front of his ultraviolet camera to show them just how drastic their sun damage already is. Just look at all those invisible freckles appearing!
From the deep within the whacky ideas basket comes this ripper from Justin Quinnell, a photographer from Bristol, who put a miniature camera inside his mouth, then travelled the world taking happy snaps as he went along. He made the camera by putting aluminium foil across a small hole 1/5 of a millimetre wide on […]
Some of our past Favourites
Artists Lewis G. Burton and Victor Ivanov have created the most bizarre (and sickening) ‘art project’ in the history of art projects: the Gimp Suit. It’s a suit made entirely out of chicken skin, with a little bit of thread added in to keep it all stuck together. You’re probably wondering why anyone would ever make such a thing, but this artistic duo claims it’s to ‘examine the relationship between identity and its commodification through social medias’.
Starting this month, the Tate museum in London is allowing the public to go through the museum’s collection after-dark, all while using self-controlled robots. Four robots have been designed for these museum adventures and can be controlled by people all over the world through a web portal.
Chloe Giordano’s works are tiny – hardly larger than a thimble – but they are every bit as beautiful and intricate as any work of art. The illustrator and embroider from Oxford, England uses freehand embroidery (and probably a ton of patience) to depict highly-detailed miniature animals. Various colors are applied to give the creatures […]
Using the hashtag ‘MakeupTransformation’ on Instagram, dozens of guys have showed us just what the power of makeup can do. Creating a four-panel view of their efforts, these hilarious guys have rocked everyone from Mr. Bean and Drake, to Lupita Nyong’o. It shows that all it takes is tons of makeup, a few accessories and a […]
The Hanwha Eagles, a South Korean professional baseball team, became famous recently not so much for their wins but because they filled three rows of a stadium with robots they named Fanbots. Their fans can request for their faces to be projected on each Fanbot’s facial screen and their messages sent via SMS can be projected in real time by the LED placards held by these robots.
These incredible fusions of aluminium and wood are the work of Israeli artist Hilla Shamia. The one-of-a-kind pieces of furniture are created by pouring molten aluminum over wooden logs, allowing the liquid metal to seep into every crack.
We all know by now that eating too many fried foods will eventually catch up to us. So what’s the next best thing? Deep-fried fitness! Hilarious copywriter Claire Wyckoff has created a series of delicious foods that start off incredibly healthy, but end up a little backwards thanks to some rather hearty frying techniques.
We love this project concept by German artist Jan-Hendrik Pelz. As part of the Locarno Film Festival Pelz asked his fellow artists and filmmakers to submit to him their favourite film along with a set of 5 random numbers.
Well, what did you expect? What began as a fun, informal project three years ago has since blossomed into a fully fledged Kickstarter project for a 220 page book of ‘full-color vag drawings all inside a handsome hard cover’. Huh. Shannon O’Malley is the creative whirlwind behind the concept which began at a dinner party […]
Now this is how to go camping! Mina is a small city located in western Saudi Arabia, and because of its location-just 8km from Mecca-it’s the ideal place to camp out during the Haj season. This place has more than 100,000 tents to choose from, each one measuring 8 by 8 metres, and constructed of fiberglass. Each tent is fully air-conditioned, too!
For Je t’aime moi aussi, photographer Olivier Fermariello enters the bedrooms of individuals with disabilities, cutting through taboo and rarely discussed topics to reveal the complex sexual identities of his subjects. In a world that subscribes to a relatively homogeneous definition of beauty, physical differences at times become a source of discomfort. Here, Fermariello combats the prejudice surrounding disabled individuals, who are too often unjustly and inaccurately relegated to a realm of non-sexuality. [This post first ran on Feature Shoot]
