The artist responsible for the amazing french fry sculpture is Christopher Chiappa! Huge thanks to Melissa for commenting on the original post and pointing me to the Kate Werble Gallery! The community here is such an amazing resource! Kate just sent over a couple images and it turns out the work is part of a diptych called “McMiracles”.
Random International’s “Study for Fifteen Points” is a 15-legged kinetic artwork. Tipped with white LED lights, the piece’s movements are an experiment with the minimal amount of information necessary for an animated form to be recognizable as human. More images below and video below!

You may remember JR from his silent protest with Darren Aronofsky last year (click here for previous post). This time around the French artist has covered the Louvre’s massive glass pyramid with a black and white rendering of the building behind, creating the effect that the landmark has disappeared. The installation will be messing with selfie-seeking tourists from now until June 27th. More images below!
