The LEGO Ukulele

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 02, 2011
Some great readers of this site, knowing that we enjoy a great LEGO sculpture, sent us this LEGO Ukulele this morning. Because it is amazing, we assume. Ross Crawford made the ukulele out of LEGO bricks, and the kicker is that is even works.

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 17, 2011
We all know that Arnold and James Cameron popularized the half-man, half-machine theme, but Fan Xiaoyan has taken the concept to a whole new level in this series of women with machine body parts. The tank sculptures in particular are of amazing note.

Abandoned Oddities

Street Art // Monday, May 09, 2011
In the late 60's and 70's former Yugoslavian president Josip Broz Tito commissioned a range of sculptors and architects to create the following powerful monuments. Constructed in honor of WWII battles and where concentration camps once existed. In the 1980s, these monuments attracted millions of visitors, especially young pioneers for their "patriotic education." After the Republic dissolved in early 1990s, they were completely abandoned.  These fascinating pieces mostly made of concrete look futuristic and cultish.

Bubble as a Metaphor

Erotica // Wednesday, May 04, 2011
In Bubble Woman, Shu Yong uses the medium of his ubiquitous bubbles by referring to today's omni-present 'bosom culture'. As bosoms have long ago outgrown the category of being mere body parts, they now play the role of a political, economic, and cultural asset by strengthening the place of one of the most important characteristics of the female body. It is conceivable today, how female breasts are blown up as an object of foam for seemingly limitless lust and power.

Theo Jansen's Strandbeest

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 28, 2011
This is a few years old now, and we have posted about the artist back in 2007 (!), but Theo Jansen's Strandbeest mobile skeleton sculpture, that relies on wind power to move, is still a vastly interesting project. Jansen remarks, "I make skeletons that able to walk on wind so they don't have to eat."
