Chicago based chef Grant Achatz of the Alinea Restaurant specialises in molecular gastronomy and has developed a pretty awesome new taste experience… A balloon filled with helium sugar sprinkled with dried Granny Smith apple. A desert you to have to breathe in might be appeal to some, and it appeals to me from a creative point of view, but I am not sure it will ever come close to Gu Chocolate Pot on a spoon.
One of my amazing ‘mad artists’ has come up with something REALLY cool which he has being doing in the US over the past few weeks…
Check out Peat’s (stenSOUL) stencils on a balloon video below. I am sure he will send me some images soon then I can update this post. Great work:
TBWA has just completed a stop-motion animation for the French Association of Fight Against AIDS. It is possible the most random, yet great, yet pornographic public service style advert I have ever seen. There is NO way this would have been allowed in the UK – I may have to move to France. Warning has some extreme content that may not be considered SFW (!!!).
On a similar vein (but I can imagine this would get past official channels in the UK) you are not going to miss this 120 foot flying condom with the French government are using to fight the spread of AIDS. It went on display Jan. 26 at the Palais de la Decouverte, as part of a campaign created by the French association CondomFly (I don’t speak French so can’t shed much more light on the matter).
Anyone for a quick game of spot the difference?..
I am going as a “Zombie Orville the Duck” (am still looking for my Keith if anyone is interested) to all the parties on Saturday but if I wasn’t then I heart this balloon boy costume! The other astonishing fact I have discovered is that is possible to create an entire Orville the Duck costume from American Apparell.
There is now clowning around (sorry) but it comes to the balloon art from Jason Hackenwerth. He creates simply incredible structures that look like the love child of an alien and a sex toy. I don’t have a really dirty mind just visually that is what they look like… …erm apparently. All the rubber and risk of popping would freak me out though.
