Coca-Cola Crate Sculptures by Warren Lewis

Several of these ginormous sculptures made entirely out of the old fashioned coca-cola crates were constructed for the 2010 World Cup and placed in various locations around South Africa, some of which are still standing! And let’s be honest, while I’m sure these were intended to look like they’re rooting for Number #1, you totally thought these hugemongous cratebots were giving you the double middle finger, admit it.

Field for the British Aisles by Antony Gormley

Made up of an army of 40,000 clay figures, Antony’s acclaimed art installation is currently being installed in three rooms at the National Trust’s Barrington Court near Ilminster, England. Imbue them with life and teach them to ride cats and we ride at dawn, men!

Weightlessness in Nature by Cornelia Konrads

Cornelia’s outdoor installations seem to give Mother Nature the finger with their brazen defiance of gravity. Suspended in time, her works often seem to be in caught in the middle of construction themselves, an act we were never supposed to witness.

Time In Words by Biegert and Funk

The QLOCKTWO was an innovative wall clock design magicked up by Biegert and Funk a few years ago, with words that describe the time instead of making it easy for you. What are you in such a big hurry for anyway, world’s ending this year anyways. Their new wristwatch edition will be available sometime in the Fall, however, just in time for read out “a quarter to annihilation” (hopefully)

American: The Gift Shop by Phillip Toledano

US Foreign policy wasnt exactly diplomatic in the Bush years (or as we like to refer to them: “The Dark Ages”). Phillip decided to take it one offensive step further: what if the good ol’ US of Merica decided to sell trinkets based on their disastrous foreign policy?

Party Like It’s 1999 by Alexander Ramsey

Designed as part of a program for the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh that offered on-campus residents music and games from the 1990’s, so basically all the coolest gadgets, dead technology, and yo-yo’s. Ah, that rubs my nostalgia gland the right way. Sadly, no Prince nor pogs were included in this layout. Check out more detail shots at Alexander’s behance.

The iMacquarium by Jake Harms

Starting off as a personal project, which ballooned into so many personal requests, Jake kicked off his own Kickstarter to fund a full-fledged operation that will provide completed iMac Aquariums and DIY kits as well. You can still check the kickstarter at the link below, but Jake has already hit his goal of $5,000 and then some. All that’s left now is to buy some exotic sharks and drop James Bond into it and you’re set.

Rainbow Pega-Corn Birfday Cake by Heather Sherman

Made for her daughter’s 7th birthday who requested a ”Rainbow Unicorn pegasus with a mama and a baby”. The head and legs are made of krispy-treat, while the wings had a wire ‘bone’ laced through them and are covered in gumpaste feathers. The inside was golden vanilla cake and as my compatriot at OW pointed out, the baby was probably the best part. Personally, eating a pegasus or unicorn baby first thing in the morning is how I keep my hair so lustrous.
