Street Artist Makes Building into Set of Wind-up Teeth

The building used to be the Dolphinarium discotheque in Tel Aviv, Israel, until it was the site of a suicide bombing in 2001. Israeli street artist Dede (previously at Neatorama) saw something promising in the shell of the structure- a giant set of of choppers, or wind-up teeth. He says,

30m wide x 10m high piece, The abandoned Dolphinarium, Tel-Aviv, 2015

Without any doubt the biggest art challenge I have ever had. This piece was hard to achieve.
Stormy nights, high rollers from the ground, the all deal. But it had to be done, I had this vision for almost a year now.

This landmark is found in the middle of continuing ownership arguments, another real estate bite in Tel-Aviv's view.

Note the wind-up key at the right. It’s not as big as it should be for the building, but that’s fixed with a little forced perspective. -via Laughing Squid
