Have you ever scoured the strange and beautiful archive of free stuff on Craigslist? Free stuff in this context ranges from adorable puppies to sofas out in the snow, piles of dirt, and defunct televisions, all of which are simultaneously uplifting, sincere and full of hope for new ownership and suspect, sad, and blatantly abandoned.

The romantic landscape and self-portrait genres are combined as a means of re-examination.

You can now eat luxury (and there are a ton of people who gobble up LV goods like they are waffles, and we are pretty sure that LV makes their low end bags like waffles). OTIS graduate Andrew Lewicki has created one of our favorite sculptures of the year; the Louis Vuitton Waffle Maker. Waffles from here go for $32. Joking. Not really.
