  • I demand a video clip of someone dropping in on this!

    • lapetitefaon

      ditto! Looks impossible!

  • Bolla

    Nothing but marbles can role on that ramp!

  • I don’t get what the point of that is? but it does look like an upside down cone :)

    • its a joke, you’re allowed to laugh :)

  • That’s one ramp I’d not like to drop in on.

    • JCD

      No, I’d not like either.

  • y equals x squared alright… i especially like the pointless stairs, and the symmetry in all 3 dimensions…

  • Kenny

    It would be possible if scaled up to maybe 200 ft tall. But the G forces at the bottom would be too much

  • skeet skeet

    it’s art, you morons.

  • tha

    LOL!

Captivating Stop-Motion Dissections of Everyday Objects by Artist Simon Gerbaud

Simon Gerbaud

 

Artist Simon Gerbaud has created a series of animations involving the incremental destruction of various objects like shoes and hairdryers as well as larger things like refrigerators and shopping carts. While the stop motion creations are strangely satisfying to watch on their own, Gerbaud has used them in several interactive installations in the past.

At the XII Feria de las Calacas in Mexico in 2012, the footage was synched to audience activated sensors so that the objects would disappear (or reappear) according to people’s movements, noises or breathing in the room. Check out more images and video of Gerbaud’s fascinating work below!
