ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
We've previously posted about artist Brock Davis's "Broccoli Treehouse" and "Gummi Bearskin Rug." Now he's recreated "Historic Explosions in Cauliflower." Above, "Cauliflower Space Shuttle Challenger, 1986."
oh lawd. insert Christa MacCauliflower reference here.
I can’t help myself. I-I’m so ashamed.
You should be.
She was my second cousin-in-law twice removed. You have my permission.
I didn’t expect that…the image is immediately recognizable, and made me feel sad all over again.
You’re still broken up about the Hindenburg?
Yep, too soon, too soon…..
Dislike. I bawled my eyes out that day.
(And before anyone objects: I do recognize the obvious cauliflower joke, and it was not intended).
Yes, I recognized it immediately. An unfortunate post for an insensitive concept.
Sorry, but not cool.
This doesn’t offend me. It’s a stark and beautiful work of art that doesn’t appear to making fun of the tragedy.
That’s amazing. I had to double check to see the food stuffs.
All of you people that say it’s “not coo”l or “feel sad” again seeing this – well that’s the power of art. You’re welcome.
It makes me think how much better the Challenger accident would have been with some grated cheddar.
Would it kill you to make a sauce? Really?
Insensitive and tasteless. It really serves no purpose.
I agree. Cauliflower really is a shitty vegetable.
The Challenger disaster still deeply stings-as it doesn’t seem so very long ago.
It was 27 years ago.
Didn’t even realize it was really that long ago. I remember it as if it happened much sooner- every grim and horrifying detail.
Right, and of these three, Nagasaki is not the most horrific?
I saw a squirrel get run over once. That was horrible.
Have a look at https://vimeo.com/51438218 – I put the cauliflower into that icelandic volcano.
This made me ill. Awful. Terrible. insensitive.
We need a 9/11 one immediately.
