A Cityscape Made Out Of Staples

This is one cityscape where loose sheets of paper won't be blowing down the street.

It's a cityscape called Ephemicropolis, and it was created by British artist Peter Root, who used over 100,000 staples in its creation.

The entire piece measures approximately 235 X 117 inches, with the "tallest" building measuring in at a whopping 4 and 3/4 inches high.

Spot The Skull In These Optical Illusion Artworks

These black and white illustrations by Istvan Orosz are masterpieces in their own right, but the fact that there is a skull hidden in each piece makes them an optical delight!

If you're having trouble finding the skull try looking at a smaller sized version of each piece and the grinning face of death should be easier to spot.

400 Chairs Assembled Into A Sine Wave

Welcome to Atlanta's Freedom Park, won't you pull up a chair and stay for a while?

This awesome feat of furniture engineering, 400 wooden chairs arranged into a sine wave formation, is called (surprise, surprise) SEAT, and it was created by Ju Lee and Brian Brush.

I wouldn't wanna be anywhere near this installation when they remove one of the chairs and it all falls down!

Kids Dressed As Famous Movie Characters

File this advertising campaign under OMG ADORBS-kids dressed up like iconic movie characters to promote the Praia de Belas cineplex in Brazil.

There's little Eddie Safety Scissorhands, Jackie Sparrow drunk on fruit punch, and a Cruelita DeVil that would rather hug the little puppies than skin them alive.

You're tugging at my heartstrings Praia de Belas!

What Futurama Characters Would Look Like In Real Life

This series of realistic renditions by Jared Krichevsky shows what those crazy aliens from Futurama might look like in real life, and they're downright scary!

Jared even managed to make mild mannered Kif look rather repulsive, and I used to think Nibbler looked cute and cuddly...now I'm not so sure...

Coloso Wants To Share His Power With You

This is Coloso, and he's a massive electrical tower shaped like a robot that was created by art collective Doma for the Tecnopolis 2012 exhibition in Argentina.

Donkey Kong Was Only The Beginning...

dr.whodonkeykong

Digital artist Julien Bazinet has taken the classic arcade game Donkey Kong and recast it with some of pop culture's most beloved characters, creating simulated screens for an out of this world platformer.

Villains like Bane, the Xenomorph Queen and Cookie Monster?! await the hero at the top of the screen in these pixel-tastic homages to retro gaming.

Man, I wish somebody would make these into levels in a real Donkey Kong mod!

A Modern Take On The Classic Lava Lamp

Designer Merve Kahraman has created an updated version of the classic Lava Lamp, and this time the wax is flowing fluid-free.

He calls it the Revitalizer, and it looks like a big old waxy mess in the making!

Wax heated by a high voltage bulb up top drips into the cup below, and when the whole thing is melted down, you can take it out of the cup and start all over again.

Psychedelic Critter Statues By Troy Emery

These wild and wooly critter statues were created by a crafty Australian artist named Troy Emery.

Troy starts with a taxidermy foam body form and adds craft materials to the body, like brightly colored yarn, pompoms and plastic beads.  

What a funky menagerie of fantastically far out creatures!

The Dark Knight Returns...To The Bathroom!

This custom Batman toilet paper holder was made by a tongue-in-cheeky sort of fellow named conrick, and it's all sorts of wrong!

Hasn't old Batsy been put through enough trials and tribulations lately, now he's gotta stand around looking embarrassed while you do your business?!

This thing is so wacky, if a friend had one in their house I'd probably hatch a Joker inspired scheme and abscond with it...for the sake of the Dark Knight's dignity, of course.

The Updated Geek Signs Of The Zodiac

If you've always felt like there was an Undead Slayer, Pirate, or Spy lurking inside you, it's probably because of your Geek Zodiac sign.

In this annual zodiac the animals are replaced by beloved icons of geekdom, with the years under each sign determined by the year when the first example of the icon (approximately) appeared in popular culture.

I'm an Undead/Slayer, so i'm totally gonna PWN the upcoming zombie apocalypse!

(design by Joshua G. Eckert, concept by James F. Wright)

Retro Styled Rayguns Made From Found Objects

This awesome array of retro rayguns are made from found objects by Kevin Skinner, aka Budget Raygun.

The only thing that could make these retro-futuristic styled rayguns any cooler is if they actually fired energy beams and made pew!pew! noises. 

The future was so much cooler in the past!

This amazing feat of Lego engineering would make anyone feel like Godzilla. It's a highly detailed map of Japan made from 1.8 million Lego bricks, and it looks so pretty that I want to DESTROY!

This masterpiece was created to celebrate 50 years of Lego in Japan, and more than 5,000 people across Japan helped build it during the Build Up Japan celebration.

Geeky Nesting Dolls By BoBo Babushka

Nesting dolls, known as Matryoshka dolls in their native Russia, don't have to feature stoic faced babushkas in sarafans.

Take these geeky nesting dolls for example, which were made by Etsy seller Irene Hwang aka BoBo Babushka.

They feature characters from such popular geek fare as The Avengers, Black Adder and the Big Bang Theory.

What a fun way to show some geek love and spruce up your abode at the same time!

Rubber Band Gatling Gun

(YouTube Link)

The guy in this video has created the ultimate non-lethal squirrel deterrant- a rubber band gatling gun that fires 200 rounds with the crank of a wooden handle.

Reloading looks like a huge pain in the neck, but I doubt any invading critters are going to stick around after seeing this thing let loose!

Surreal Sculptures By Alex Chinneck

Brick chimneys are not typically thought of as flexible structures, and slicing through them isn't anything like slicing through a piece of paper.

Well, sculptor Alex Chinneck must have missed the memo on what you can and can't do with bricks, and his whimsical sculptures blur the boundary between art and home renovation. It's like shopping at a home improvement store designed by a madman!

Kingdom Hearts Keyblades Never Used In The Series

These Keyblade designs for the Final Fantasy/Disney crossover video game series Kingdom Hearts were never used in the games for a good reason-they're just plain sick!

They definitely would have added a touch of morbid humor to the game, but I don't think Disney would have appreciated them very much...

The Olympic Ticket Scalper

(Funny Or Die Link)

Sir Patrick Stewart takes some time off from his busy acting career to get in on the Olympic ticket scalping game, and he's so good at hustling it's scary.

Say goodbye to the 2012 London Olympic Games with this wee bit o' funny co-starring Simon Pegg!

American Geeks Photographed In The Wild

Photographer Jake Warga has traveled the globe as a professional photojournalist, but none of his subjects have been as wild and wooly as the classic American geek.

The geeks in this series have been captured in their native habitat, aka various niche conventions across the U.S., to ensure that they are captured where they feel most comfortable.

Removing the background and leaving each geek floating in white space makes these images a bit surreal, but it serves to eliminate any distraction from the true stars of the show- American grown geeks.

Wilders Sculptures By Wilfrid Wood

These whimsical sculptures by Wilfrid Wood are based on characters involved in a not so whimsical event- the 2011 London riots.

Wilfrid has captured the chaotic nature of these miscreants in clay, but rather than empowering this rogues gallery he shows the world what they truly are inside- a bunch of dim witted thugs who were having a good time at London's expense.

Rejected Pitches For E.T.

(YouTube Link)

This goofy little comedy video is part of a web series called Rejected Pitches, and this episode focuses on Spielberg and some studio execs sitting around talking about E.T.

After watching this video I'll never think of that wrinkly little brown alien with the glowing finger the same way ever again!

Brandalism Campaign Hits Billboards Across The UK

Brandalism was the name given to a street art campaign that covertly replaced billboards across the UK with works by artists such as Ron English, Leo Murray and Eyesaw.

The replacement pieces scathingly satirize the ideas and propaganda behind billboard ads, ranging from poignant and political to downright comical messages, like the Ron English ad for mythical meats pictured above.

25 artists from 8 countries gathered to take place in Brandalism, and you can see the rest of their subversive works at the link below.

Awesome CG Animated Short - A Fox Tale

(Vimeo Link)

This beautiful animated short is called A Fox Tale, and it was created by four students from the French animation school Supinfocom Arles.

The story is loosely based on Asian mythology, and features vibrant colors, gorgeous visual effects and charming character designs.

I wouldn't be surprised to see this short become a feature length film some day, and needless to say the students who created A Fox Tale are definitely going places!

CG Animated Short Shows Life After Aperture

(YouTube Link)

After Aperture is a CG fan film with beautiful atmospherics and an understated elegance that attempts to explain what happens to Chell after she escapes from Aperture Science in the video game Portal 2.

Apparently the creator Zachariah Scott drew inspiration for the film from a sketch he saw of Chell sitting on the Companion Cube in the rain, and even though this short lacks action it has definitely captured the mood of life after Aperture.

Cute Android Figures Made From Random Junk

These cute little android figures were made by crafty Andrea Petrachi, and they look like a Jawa's dream come true!

They make up for their lack of mortal soul with an overabundance of personality and charm.

In fact, they're so neat looking that they could inspire a scifi series of their own, something likeRobobabies and the battle for the Junkyard...

The First Feature Length Film Shot Entirely On A Smartphone


(YouTube Link)

Olive looks like a cute little film, with an indie flair and a colorful cast, nothing too groundbreaking until you discover how the film was shot- entirely on a Nokia N8 smartphone!

Also noteworthy is the fact that Olive was created as a true independent, the first film to make it from small smartphone screen to the big screen without the backing of a major motion picture studio.
