OK, via MODD3D comes this very strange but very cool, uh, thing:
It's made by the hilharious Maywa Denki, and it looks like this was just exhibited last month in Japan. Here's some info from the Maywa Denki site:
Maywa Denki is an art unit produced by Nobumichi Tosa. It was named after the company that his father used to run bygone days.
The costume [in related photo] is designed as a typical working uniform of Japanese electric stores, symbolizing small/medium-sized enterprises that had once supported Japanese economy during its high-growth period. Its unique style is indicated by a term he uses: for example, each piece of Maywa Denki's work is called 'a product' and a live performance or exhibition Is held as 'a product demonstration'. The products produced so far include "NAKI Series", flsh-motif nonsense machines. "TSUKUBA Series". original musical instruments. and "ARCLASSY Series'.proposal of a life-style with Maywa hnki. Although Maywa Denki is known and appreciated as an artist, its promotion strategies are full of variety: exhibition.
live stages, performances, producing music, vldeos, writing. merchandising toys, stationery. and electric devices.
