HOW IS POOP MAKE?

[HOW IS POOP MAKE?] :: The long way from food to poop is one of many pieces in the gallery of artist Carlo Giovani. A true multi-media artist, his work runs from digital art (like this incredible series of pieces on 70s films done as pinball machines) to infographics (such as the poop one linked above) to stop motion work (like this quicktime commercial for Brazillian potato chips), and even sculptures (from clothing, lego & even food) but the highlights for me are the papercraft figures & dioramas. warning - the site will try to hijack your browser window, albeit mildly; if this is unacceptable, consider yourself warned & skip the link.

Oooooooooooooh... what an amazing post.
I've never seen this work before -I absolutely love it.

I may just have to steal those cool cloud designs from the chip commercial.

Great stuff.

Check out the War Maps thing, it's pretty awesome. Really everything I've seen on the site is worth looking at - I just wish some of it could be blow up larger.

Nice. Remids me a lot of this illustration from 1926.

Wow, gorgeous stuff. Great find, jonson.

This would be even awesomer if I understood Portuguese. As is, it's pretty damn awesome.

Fantastic, inventive stuff. Thanks, jonson!

If y'all like this stuff, you should bookmark Drawn!, one of the best blogs around. I assume that's where jonson saw it earlier today, but they deserve a mention anyway. Truly a fantastic site for stumbling onto stuff like this.

This guy is a capital A Artist. I like that the sole content of his "shop" is a poster print of what appears to be a nude quadriplegic with an octopus emerging from her vagina. Fuck Cafe Press, huh?

Goddamn it, Siberian Mist, you beat me to it.

It's all great! But I like the Rocky Balboa pinball machine, where every Rocky foe is on a bumper. Oh yes, I'll be linking through this for a while, jonson.

mediareport's right, I believe. drawn (along with table of malcontents, notcot, bifurcated rivets & about 20 others) are in my daily checklist, and when I run across something I want to post, I usually forget where I originally saw it. My bad, this is definitely from Drawn, and it is absolutely worth bookmarking.

I was trying to find the shit machine that Siberian Mist linked to. Here are pictures of the machine that turns food into turds which are sold to art collectors.

This guy is pretty ill. I think I'm going to make King Momo on my next day off.

I think it's always worth highlighting the source of a post to the front page, jonson, don't you? (You used to, anyway.) The original source deserves it, really, and while there's always the exception/overlooked instance, you kinda seem to be backing away from the idea that it's worth linking back to the source at all. Hopefully that's not the case, since it's always seemed to me to be in the spirit of this thing to take time to give credit to the source of excellent material.

But you know all this...

I beg to differ. I just forgot, is all. But seriously, you don't need to police me or my posts, your point has been made (twice now).

Relax, jonson; I was responding to your "I usually forget where I originally saw it" comment above, which sounded like you were going "meh" in general to the notion of taking time to give credit to the sites you visit when you post to MeFi. Glad to hear that's not the case.

I visit Drawn! pretty much daily and was just surprised you didn't source this, since it seemed a good bet you saw it there first. Not giving credit comes across like bad form, to me, and reading a lot of sites and "usually forgetting" only kinda works as an excuse for not linking to folks who send you to the cool stuff you post here. Again, glad to see that it's not the norm. Sorry for not noticing the times you do give credit as much as the times you (and others) don't.

If I sound upset, it's because if you started at this post & counted down (on the front page of metafilter), you'd get to 31 posts without a "via" until you finally reached one that did have give credit. And yes, that one is by me. To me, it's nice (but not mandatory) to give credit for a link. I have a tendency to note down links I saw in a bookmarklet app on my desktop, a sort of local del.icio.us, but not where I saw them. It doesn't mean I'm trying to avoid giving credit to the previous source, it's just laziness.
posted by jonson at 9:50 PM on January 13, 2007


And all I'm saying is "it's just laziness" is a poor excuse for not giving credit to sources. You're the most prolific poster here; if you took the courtesy of giving credit seriously, others might start taking it more seriously as well.
posted by mediareport at 2:29 PM on January 14, 2007


Also, you started doing "via's" fairly recently (maybe in response to my first comment about it, I dunno). But, after looking at your posting history, it's really not something you've done very much at all here. Sure, the FAQ says it's a courtesy, not mandatory, but you're well-positioned to set the courteous example. Really, you should. Everyone should.

Spread the love, man. Give back to the sites that give to you.

Too bad I cannot read Portuguese. Or, is there an English version that the rest of you have seen and I have not?
