Music Posters by zZz

‘Running with the Beast’ is the title track of the new album by zZz. Roel Wouters made this music video, which resulted in the artwork and a series of posters for the song. Two cocks were colored with Ecoline, then they printed their fight on a sheet of paper. They claim that no animals were injured and no blood was shed.

Tara Donovan

For over a decade, American sculptor Tara Donovan has transformed huge volumes of everyday items into stunning works of phenomenal impact. Layered, piled, or clustered with an almost viral repetition, these products assume forms that both evoke natural systems and seem to defy the laws of nature.

Nebulous, appearing like a mist over the floor, is made of nothing more than strips of Scotch® tape. Bluffs, nearly five-foot-high forms that suggest mountain peaks or stalagmites, are actually teetering stacks of plastic buttons.
