1  Pinball Machine made to be destroyed. in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by mandyatlarge on: October 13, 2009 09:21:12 PM
This piece is about movement and was inspired by the book Lullaby by Chuck Palahniuk and is entitled Constructive Deconstruction. I made the pinball table out of wood, and springs. The obstacles are made out of eggs, glass, and tissues. I made the doors at the top from wood, syringe tips and Plexiglas. I also had baggies filled with oil in the doors.

This piece is about destruction.. the more you play the game, the more you destroy it. The motor oil at the end tarnishes this to the point you would never be able to use it again. This can be interpreted many different ways and I encourage you to come away with your own conclusions.






Me playing it. As you can see, the lights really lit up!


The final product.

I invited everyone in attendance at the opening to 'play' the game.

I loved seeing the reactions, most were so scared to really hurt it yet some were anxious to really break things!

2  Painted Zombie Lighter! in Completed Projects by mandyatlarge on: October 13, 2009 08:24:18 PM
This is my first craft post ^^ Hope this is the right place.. definitely misc.

My boyfriend is a nasty smoker.. but I love him. I painted his lighter to get him into the festive spirit of halloween (and Zombies are just cool!) and it really seems to be working. ^^ I used fingernail polish to paint it, and it took about two hours..
