A Non-Functional Car Made From Over 12,000 Reflective Stainless Steel Parts

I had seen this first image floating around on Tumblr and assumed it was computer-generated! This is actually a life-sized replica of a smashed car composed of nearly 12,000 pieces of reflective stainless steel by New York-based artist Jordan Griska. While non-functioning, the sculpture is modelled after a Mercedes Benz S550 and is intended to highlight both the aspiration (luxury) and reality (mortality) of American culture. See more images of “Wreck” below.

These Special Vending Machines Offer Short Stories Instead of Snacks

A series of vending machines have been popping up in public spaces around France. However, rather than offering the usual snacks and sugar-filled drinks, these dispensers print off short stories for people to read while they wait for their flight or dawdling shopping companion.

See more images below or click here to learn more about the project.
