The 'You & Me' interactive public art installation by Zhang Zhaohui has a way of bringing people together. This Chinese street art features two large cookie cutter-like molds that are shaped like the male and female icons on most public washrooms. The gender specific cut outs allow for participants to step inside and become one with the art piece.

The interactive public art exhibit can be seen in the famous 738 Art District in Beijing. The silver metallic forms are adult size and include small rocks to make stepping into the installation easier. If one finds themselves in the area, it's definitely worth stopping by and mounting yourself to the wall. Whether you're there with a platonic friend, significant other, or by yourself, it's worth the photo op. Stats for Cookie Cutter Art Installations Trending: Older & Buzzing
