What can you do with 2,200 pounds of butter? Create an Apollo 11 sculpture.

Generally when it comes to sculpting the more common materials would be wood, metal, and or stone. But if you’re in Ohio, and its the state fair you may try your skills with butter.

Well, that’s exactly what Paul Brooke and his team of artists used when they decided to create a 50th-anniversary tribute to the moon landing. His team took about 500 hours carving life-like statues of Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collin out of butter.

Smithsonian magazine has a great write up about this one-of-a-kind work of art.

An Introduction to Futurism

Stati d’animo – Quelli che vanno, by Umberto Boccioni

An Italian artistic movement, during the early 20th century that grew to embrace painting, sculpture, photography, and architecture to reject the past and revolutionize satiety and make it modern. 

A byproduct of the First World World, the movement was built upon the idea of forming a new society based on the modern myth of the machine and of speed.

The movement encompassed works that embraced bold, controlled chaotic enthusiasm focused on modern simplicity versus the elaborate elegance of Italy’s more known baroque and resonance artistic styles.
