Created by British designer Alex Chinneck this melting brick installation is effortlessly cool. Entitled “From the Knees of my Nose to the Belly of my Toes“ the piece is now a part of the English town Margate. If locals happen to stumble upon the piece they won’t find any information or explanation for why the building looks the way it does, but that was the artist’s decision to keep people guessing.
Chinneck spent the better part of 12 months engineering the installation and worked with several companies that offered to donate materials. He tells Dezeen that he’s fascinated with spectacles and that he “wanted to create something that used the simple pleasures of humour, illusion and theatre to create an artwork that can be understood and enjoyed by any onlooker.” The piece will be on view for a year before the building is eventually demolished.
