i’m jealous of rotganzen

WOW! … and also ew!!! If you enjoy a good old fashioned lollipop from time to time, you might not after this! This series, titledĀ GANGREDINE CONSUMPTUS, was created by ‘ROTGANZEN’ ~ an artist collective based in Rotterdam and Schiedam {the initiators, and main artists, are Robin Stam, Mark van Wijk and Joeri Horstink}.

Now, I don’t want to leave you feeling grossed out by these toxic, yet absolutely beautiful, ‘lollies’ {don’t worry, they’re made out of resin, and can’t actually be eaten – they’re just making a point!}… so instead, I’ll sign off with this other body of work by ROTGANZEN:

Ah yes, amazingly melty disco balls… GORGEOUS, and not at all poisonous.

    […] just been hiding in the bathroom for the last 40 years after being swatted with a newspaper for doing it’s business on the family room rug. Wait. Did you just hear something? Disco, if you’re in the trash again … so help me […]

    i didn’t… you’d have to talk to the the group that makes up rotganzen… but i’m not sure that they’d give up their secrets : )

    The pictures of those disco balls have been all over pintrest with “DIY by glueing mirror pieces to rocks!”. Those don’t even look like an easy Diy with rocks. But Now I can laugh every time I see it on pintrest.
