Idolls: An installation that’s every geek’s fantasy

idolls

The Idolls collection is an walkable installation by the Berlin-based designer Klaus R. Zimmermann.

The project deals with the topic IDOLS & ANTI-IDOLS.

What are idols & anti-idols in these days? How do people become an idol or anti-idol? And who can become one and why?

In this work a box of an action figure is one aspect of the answer.

Because today, if people are available as action figures they have prominent status and usually there are a lot of people, who would label them as an idol.

The second aspect is that the status of an idol or anti-idol is in the eye of the beholder.

By entering the box, this installation enables everyone to become an idol or anti-idol.

Terrific Warhammer 40K Cosplay

(From Kotaku) Nearly every piece of Warhammer 40K cosplay you see is some kind of human character, being all grim and gruff and shouting something about heresy. So it’s nice to see Russia’s Narga show the Eldar’s Howling ...
