Remember when we used to take Wonder Bread and smush it up into balls when we were kids?* Well, artist Milena Korolczuk has taken Wonder Bread balling to a new level by creating mini-sculptures of other artists like Marina Abramović, Andy Warhol, and Jay-Z.
More pictures after the break. Personally, I think it would be really neat to see Abramović do her “The Artist Is Present” installation with this scuplture. It’s just meta enough to work
The size of this bottle is impressive enough, but it’s even more amazing when you realize that Danny Kissel (his Dew addicted son is pictured here) created this 38″ tall sculpture out of a block of wood with a chainsaw. Perhaps he will follow this up with a giant Xbox sculpture to complete the set.
Its unclear whether this massive Mario canned food sculpture was built with a specific purpose (besides awesomeness), but if you’re anywhere near Calgary, Canada, you can catch it in all its 3D glory at South Center Mall.
Keisuke Yamada is an artist who specializes in banana art – a talent that earned him internet fame and a recent appearance on Japan’s biggest morning show.
Although it may not seem like a big deal, the process is actually pretty difficult, as rapid color and the texture changes demand quick work. The sculpture seen above took only 15 minutes to make, and the creative process was captured by IT Media for the world to see.

You may remember this sculpture from the photo and wordplay we published back in November. Thankfully some new information, videos, and even more wordplay has surfaced to satisfy your curiosity about tuna and corn R2-D2.
The official name is “Candroid”, and it recently served as a nerd magnet at the annual San Francisco Canstruction competition before being dismantled can by can and donated to local food banks. Hit the jump to watch a time lapse of its construction, as well as a video of the completed sculpture in all of its moving, beeping glory.
With talent and copious amounts of patience, Makaon has transformed the humble can into a variety of mind boggling nerd sculptures including Mario, Darth Vader and Batman. Hit the jump to check out additional examples.
Guinness World Records recently turned over the title of “world’s largest chocolate sculpture” to this 18,239 pound model of the Mayan-built Kukulkan pyramid in Chichen Itza, Mexico, which outweighs the previous record holder by nearly 4 tons.
Extensive planning and research set the groundwork to accurately capture the details and intricacies of an authentic Mayan temple down to the exact number of steps and panels representing numbers significant to the Mayan calendar. Built proportionally to the ancient temple’s true size, the solid chocolate pyramid is six feet tall and its base measures 10 feet by 10 feet – exactly one-thirtieth the size. The sculpture’s base alone weighs more than 3,000 pounds.
The massive sculpture will be on display in Irvine, California at the Qzina Institute of Chocolate & Pastry until December 31, 2012 (when the Mayan calendar comes to an end).
