Monkey made out of flip-flops

I would love to be walking in a park and happen upon this monkey. I’ve never really understood why flip flops are so popular, I’ve never found them to be comfortable. This seems like a better use for them. Except for the being made out of plastic part.  I also like the flopped monkey being made out of flip flops part of the installation

Paintings with a Collage Aesthetic by Sarah Winkler

I found Sarah Winkler featured on the Citra-solv Facebook page. I’m not exactly sure how they are done, they look like they are assembled from various papers. The site descriptions indicate they are painted. Given they are pretty big, it’s more likely paint. Perhaps she sketches in paper first, then works from those sketches?

Sculpted portraits from phone books

I used to have a thing for phone books. When I arrived in a new location, I would often spend some time reading the local phone book to help me get my bearings. I think it was a low tech internet-like thing. I even had phone books from other locations I visited. Now that I have the web, I no longer have any use for phone books, and toss them in recycle right away. Seems such a waste. So it was great to find Alex Queral using them to make portraits.

  1. I love these eye candy posts! And, next time I feel the monkeybrain coming on, I’ll remind myself it’s only flipflops. 🙂

    • Glad you like them Barbara. There are so many interesting things out on the webs, so I also appreciate when people help me see more of them.
