If you’re like me, you’ve fantasized about making a giant, fat monkey out of flip flops several times in your life. Well, some students in Sao Paulo did just that.
Dutch artist Florentjin Hofman designed the structure, and the students involved in the project appropriately named it “Fat Monkey,” just in time for Pixelshow’s 2010 conference, which showcases art with a pixelated look. Students built the monkey’s body out of flip flops because the sandals are a long-standing trademark of Brazil.
As you can see in this video, constructing the monkey was no easy task. The innovation is strong in this group. Keep an eye on these students. Their creativity knows no bounds.
