You’d like to indulge your skanky side, but don’t even know where to begin, right? Enter paper nipple tassles, by artist Bert Gilbert, a London-based creative interested in taking paper arts to a whole new place. “More fun than you thought possible with paper,” he says. To which we reply: You underestimate our kinky paper ways. [Bert Gilbert]
Artist Burt Jansen was bummed when his cat Orville was killed by a car, but he also saw his pet’s death as an artistic opportunity — turning lemons into lemonade, if you will. Jansen stuffed the dead animal, and through some ingenious engineering, turned Orville the Cat into Orville the Helicopter, or the Orvillecopter. The cat-cum-remote-controlled-toy is currently on display at the Kunstrai Art Festival in Amsterdam. And while Jansen admits that the Orvillecopter doesn’t always fly perfectly straight, he assures us that “he will receive more powerful engines and larger props for his birthday. So this hopping will soon change into steady flight.”
Please enjoy a video of the Orvillecopter actually flying after the jump.
