    I love seeing all the cool creative things that people make. Seeing stuff like this never fails to put a smile on my face.

    Is it wrong to hate this mofo? Damn thats nice.

    Don’t forget the reasoning behind it being a dragon, seeing as it is the year of it~

    not to take away from how awesome this is. . . but 80 hours? that seems a little high

  5. ^^^^^^^^^What’s up with the recent influx of spam on BB?!? ^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Oh and the Dragon is awesome. Be really cool if the artist constructed it such that they could fill it with helium once completed.

    Very cool dragon.  Really demos the difference between a true artist, and the rest of us.  I might be able to get a dragon “head” with a solo cup, but that’s about it.  Very inspiring. 

    It would be nice to see this painted, right now, all one color, the details don’t “pop”.

    I personally am looking forward to the discussion over whether this qualifies as high art or low art…

    Just goes to show you can make pretty much anything out of anything.  If an Inuit can make a knife out of shit, then I’m certain someone could make a nice dildo.  LOL.

    And fragile too, I’d imagine

    in my city, plastic ‘cutlery’ isn’t recyclable – this is great.

    Stunningly good. Brian Jungen made Cetology (2002), a 42ft whale out of plastic chairs that was in an exhibiti at the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM). Pic here but doesn’t really do it justice.

    someone needs to weld one up from stainless steel cutlery.

      It’s been done. A friend did a 2X life-sized armadillo using soup spoons. Art students do interesting stuff every day.

  14. Labbit says:

    Yeah, but is it fine art?? ;)

    There’s a gallery in Manhattan (on West Broadway) that shows a bunch of really cool organic looking sculptures made from silver-colored plastic cutlery.
