    AsapTHOUGHT Explores the Link Between Art and Science

    What is art? It's an age-old question made even more confusing by stuff like upside-down urinal fountains and drawings of pipes that may or may not actually be pipes. But, on their new channel called AsapTHOUGHT, the AsapSCIENCE guys think that science and art are more closely linked than you might imagine.

    More Powerful Than Hormones, More Confusing Than Your First Time: Uterus Man

    What do deep throat laser cannons, sanitary pad skateboards, and flying scorpion pelvises have in common? They're all part of the most ovarian-blowing introduction to a superhero ever, the video for Uterus Man. NSFW, sadly, unless you work with someone who can explain this to you (like a gynecologist from space.)

    Here’s What Space Would Be Like If the Moon Were Only 1 Pixel Wide

    As Douglas Adams once famously noted, space is big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mindbogglingly big it is. Graphic artist Josh Worth didn't think you all were quite getting it, so he decided to shrink the solar system down to "tediously accurate scale" for you.

    Artist Uses Real Bees to Turn Figurines into Horrifying Beehive People

    When most of us see tchotchke laying around, we just ignore it, because we're not weird hoarders. Not artist Aganetha Dyck, though. No, when she sees porcelain figurines that serve little to no purpose, she thinks, "You know what these are missing? Bees." Now I've seen them, and I can't unsee them, so please share my horror.

    You kids and your emojis. Just type words! Or, at the very least, if you're going to use emojis use them well. As an example, here are two pieces of emoji poetry, somehow not called emojetry. It's exactly what it looks like. Poems written with emojis. Enjoy.

    “Santa Classics” Reimagines Famous Works of Art With Santa Claus Photoshopped In

    Artist and photographer Ed Wheeler has always felt that a good number of classic artworks are missing something very crucial -- an appearance by Santa Claus. So he put together a series in which he dresses up as Father Christmas and corrects the imbalance himself, often with humorous results. Check out some examples of his work in this gallery.

    Banksy’s October in New York Is Almost Over, So We Take a Look Back

    We recently found out that one of Banksy's latest works was done by buying a painting from charity thrift store Housing Works, adding to it, and then returning it. The thrift store now stands to raise a bunch of money off of the proceeds for charity, which was no doubt Banksy's goal. We take a look at what else he's done this month in New York.

    6 Places David Černý’s Giant Middle Finger Sculpture Could Go Next

    Artist David Černý is kind of a weird guy. His most recent sculptural endeavor involved renting a boat to float along the Vlalta river — oh, also, on that boat was an enormous purple hand with a middle finger extended towards Prague Castle as a protest against the current Czech president.

    “Steal Banksy” Website Maps Out All Of His New York Artwork So You Can Steal It

    We've been a bit lax in reporting the past couple of Banksy pieces in New York, but that doesn't mean he's stopped unveiling them. If you want to play catch up, then the Steal Banksy website is a great place for tracking every painting across the 5 boroughs-- and every time they've been defaced, too.

    Giant Transformer Sculpture Is Built Out of a Real Ford Fiesta

    Artist Hetain Patel's past work has included inspiration from Bruce Lee and Spider-Man, which makes pretty much everything he does unassailably excellent. His full-size transformer sculpture would be the ultimate geek decoration, and it would probably scare everyone in the neighborhood away from your house — so win-win.

    Is Spam The Native Art Form Of The Internet? [Video]

    Like us, Mike Rugnetta was pretty bummed to find out that Horse_eBooks hasn't been a real spambot for the past two years. However, it got him and the rest of the crew at PBS Idea Channel thinking about the true nature of spam and whether it might, when done well, even be considered artistic. Huh. Well, that's an odd twist.
