This Artist Rented Two Digital Billboards, Then Made Them Look Like They Weren’t There

Over the past month two digital billboards along Massachusetts’ interstate freeways have been blending into their surroundings.

The Sydney Opera House is an impressive piece of world architecture, but for the past week it’s been an even greater spectacle.

British artist Mat Collishaw (previously) has built a huge 3D-printed zeotrope called All Things Fall.

In motion, a shockingly grisly scene is revealed.

Now, times are changing. With a new focus on gluten intolerance, many people are leaving conventional bread behind in search of a healthy lifestyle… The Gluten Free Museum is here to re-write history to match.
