We've all seen the trick where you hold a book or album cover with a famous face on it in front of your own, but this bizarre project from Swiss-American visual artist and composer Christian Marclay, which we spotted over at Design You Trust, takes the concept of physical trompe l'oeil collage a bit further. Marclay mixes together album cover art to create weird, assembled figures and stitches them together with string, creating a true Frankenstein's monster out of each. Some are stranger than others (Bowie in a tube top and thigh high tights isn't that off, after all, and we've always known that Michael had some killer legs on him), but they all achieve a weird sort of beauty in all the madness. Now all we'd like is to hear a sonic medley of the albums used to create each figure.
