Take a pile of mashed potatoes.
Mash your fist in them. Like how you smash the patriarchy.


Fruit Castles

First, get a few solid fruits, things like apples, pears, maybe even bananas. Just not something that’s mostly water and pulp.

Next, take a nice sharp knife and cut out rectangular bricks from your fruits. The bricks should be of a uniform size.

Now, mix up your fruit-bricks so the colors and textures are randomized. Take the bricks and build a castle with them.

Maybe your castle will look something like the one’s Mr. Escher draws. Be careful how you make the stairs overlap.

Kickstarter Project: Stairway to Heaven

Funded: 0 Pledged: $0 Days to Go: 30

Imagine if you can a stairway of the world’s most delicious chocolates. On each step you’ll find one of the world’s most delectable artisan chocolates, beginning with the lowest cacao percentage on the lowest level and leading to the highest percentages, the deepest, darkest chocolates at the top.

This would be a traveling installation with participants interviewed in each of the ten cities on the tour. Interviews would include predictions on how high participant would climb to find their ideal chocolate and then their responses once they’ve sampled their way up the stairway.

A documentary will be produced sharing the results of the Stairway to Heaven installation.

18 meatballs (these are the best http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/rachael-ray/meatball-subs-recipe.html)
6 hardboiled eggs (if you can’t boil an egg, go here http://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/how_to_make_perfect_hard_boiled_eggs/)
Non-toxic magic marker

1. Cook the meatballs.
2. Boil the eggs.
3. Arrange the meatballs into a 2-dimensional “bag” on a flat surface, e.g. a cooking sheet.
4. Draw pupils on the hardboiled eggs so they look like eyes, two pointing left, two looking straight out, two looking right.
5. Take three pictures, one with each pair of “eyes” where eyes should be on the meatball “bag.”
6. Put the pictures in gimp or photoshop and animate so it looks like you meat-and-egg “bagman” is looking back and forth, as if he is about to cross the street or else trying to avoid being outed as a spy.
