In these days i guess art is in the eye of the beholder, as in this case with the Russian artist creating a man-sized melted iPod that is actually working, at least to some degree.
We are not going to get into whether or not this is art, as personally i find it cool and would love to have it in my apartment. We are more curios as to how it actually works and how functional it is.
There is not much information available on exactly how the man-sized iPod art works and the functionality of it, but we think it would be very cool if the oversized iPod earbuds are actual speakers and the click wheel is actually working to control the iPod.
As an art piece we give this two thumbs up. It might not be a masterpiece, but it definately has a modern twist to it.
