    The Toenails and baby teeth sculpture is gross and beautiful at the same time!

      I wouldn’t; the cookies are probably quite stale by now. However the fresh art supplies (only the broken ones, of course) are quite tasty :-)

    Every once in awhile you see something, that is so obvious in it’s awesomeness that you go “Why on earth did I never think of that???” and you just marvel at the thing. This is one of these occasions!!!

    I was lucky enough to see these works on exhibition at the Incongruous Sink Gallery in Cambridge, MA. It was really quite something.

    RE: archival materials

    I was told by art degree seeking friends in college that the permanence/archiving of art was not anything the artist should be forced to consider – art is art. If an artist chooses to create art that’s permanent, great. If they choose to use a medium that’s unstable over time, no one should force them to use a more permanent medium.

    The artist Felicity Powell does something very similar:

    Very interesting, but is she worried at all about using non-archival materials? I don’t see where she covers this issue on her page, or even if it is an issue by her perception.

    Maybe she could encase them in a clear layer of polymer or something?
