We're nothing if not supporters of the arts. And goofy shit. So when we heard about Wes Naman's latest work, we were naturally excited.
You may know Naman from his Scotch Tape series, in which volunteers allowed him to cover their faces and heads with tape and photograph the results. The portfolio quickly went viral, both overwhelming Naman and inspiring his next project.
For Naman's Rubber Band series, subjects wrapped themselves, creating grotesquely silly masks. As wired.com offhandedly notes, "Some went crazier than others, because rubber bands hurt a lot more than
tape. That said, there’s still a whole lot of nose and ear warping, and
the rubber bands do an even better job than tape when it comes to
forcing skin and hair to stick out in awkward and painful ways."
We think this one's our favorite, but it's close. The Wu-Tang Financial t-shirt pushes it over the top.
The best/worst thing about this series? The Teej does this kind of thing just for kicks. If only he'd known he could get Internet Famous for it.
