Now This Is A Hand Gun

From artist Joseph Barbaccia’s Integration series: BLAMe. Not quite sure what that title means, but I like the idea here. Feeling a little vulnerable? Wish you were better armed? Well, have a handgun transplanted onto your hand, and you are a post-feminist Terminator. One question, though. When the bullet exists the forefinger, will it mess up my manicure?

The Alphabet Gets Sexed Up

One of the owners of my favorite bar, Lit Lounge, was also the toast of Art Basel in Miami this year! Erik Foss’ “Word” has managed to turn the most rudimentary skill, listing the alphabet, into the most breathtakingly sexy 26 frames. Man, I’m a writer and I didn’t even realize letters could be so hot! Foss creatively arranged to spell out the female form from A to Z, using images of ‘70s pin-up girls. But the work looks as fresh as the spank bruise on the W! I’ve never used so many censor stickers, evah, to keep this a SFW masterpiece. So, if you wanna see every bend, twist, and curve in the flesh, I highly recommend you check it out here. Keep reading »

Man Embeds Camera In The Back Of His Head

NYU photography professor Wafaa Bilal was one of 23 brave souls who agreed to have surveillance cameras embedded in the backs of their heads as part of an art project called “The Third Eye.” The images recorded on the cam will be streamed to a live feed at the Arab Museum of Modern Art in Qatar. Wafaa plans to leave the camera on at all times — including sexytime. Whoa, just whoa. Keep reading »

Rock On, Art!

Moxy Creative House has put together a badass series of art prints depicting the signature styles of 20 different rock icons. Ranging from Kurt Cobain to Run DMC, these limited edition posters are almost as cool as the rock gods that inspired them. One major complaint, though: no female musicians were included. Seriously? No Debbie Harry? No Billie Holiday? Shame! [$30 each, Moxy Creative House] Keep reading »

You Wear What You Eat

They say you are what you eat, but to photographer Ted Sabarese, you also wear what you eat. For this food-fashion project, the artist collaborated with designers to create clothing (or something like it) out of foods the models said they ate. Could you imagine walking around dressed in a representation of your daily breakfast? (“Can you tell me … do these Eggo waffles make my butt look fat?”)

Also involved in the shoot were former “Project Runway” contestants Daniel Feld and Wesley Nault, who created a stunningly elaborate artichoke leaf gown. Check it and other designs out after the jump. [PSFK] Keep reading »

Pee-Wee, In The Phone Book

Finally, a new use for the Yellow Pages! Philadelphia artist Alex Querel thought canvas was too dull a medium to work with—so he took to carving phone books to make his photo-realistic portraits of notorious celebs. Says Querel, “In carving and painting a head from a phone directory, I’m celebrating the individual lost in the anonymous list of thousands of names that describe the size of the community. In addition, I like the idea of creating something that is normally discarded every year into an object of longevity.” [Projects Gallery] Keep reading »
