Us mem

I was browsing through my tv channels when suddenly this pink cow on the Dutch news filled my screen. The voiceover told me that this cow had been vandalized by homosexuals to draw attention to the rising violence against gay people in certain cities of Holland. It turns out that the cow, named “Us Mem”, was just a tribute from the farmers to that particular breed of cow. And now it’s pink. I thought I still think it’s art.

DNA painting

How about this for an idea ? Since everything today can be personalized, why not have your own very personal portrait ? No, not another turn-any-photo-into-a-painting artwork from China, but a work that displays your DNA profile or your fingerprint. DNA11 will get you there.

Peter Paul Rubens in Dahlia’s 

A self portrait of Peter Paul Rubens (in Dutch: Pieter Pauwel Rubens) made with over 40,000 dahlia flowers. It was created for the flowercorso of the Dutch town Zundert and afterwards has been made on display for one weekend only at the famous Groenplaats in Antwerp. The portrait measures 8 x 8 meters (26×26 ft). Next to the flower portrait you can see the statue of Rubens as well. And here are some more photo’s.
