Don't Step on That Gum, It's Art!
Here's a strange site for you, to make your weekend a little weirder.
Tell your friends there's an artist who lies down on the sidewalk and turns splotches of smashed, pre-chewed bubblegum into beautiful art specimens.
Ben's Bubblegum Art
[EDIT/UPDATE: Flikr has seemingly re-assigned a sub-domain or new URI for this bubblegum art page. So now the link is correctly typed here, but the destination appears to be the Flikr home page. I don't monkey with Flikr, I got better stuff to work with, so I don't know. I guess I have to search for the deep, direct link, later, too busy right now. Boing Boing also posted about this strange site.]
We need CEOs like this, who do these kinds of things in their spare time.
I like to create digital abstract art. And I like visual/audio blog art and interactive net art.
Bubble gum is a new one on me, I mean on the sidewalk.
Careful where you tread. Don't deface that splotch art on the gum on the sidewalk on your way downtown. Watch it, please.
Right on, bubblegum artist!
