The latest issue of Kilimanjaro Magazine includes a feature in which teddy bears are exploded in the name of art. The photos were shot by Dan Tobin Smith, and the art was directed by Kilimanjaro magazine founder Olu Odukoya.

Creative Review's online feature about Kilimanjaro Magazine includes a video of one of the bears exploding during the process of creating the Exploding Teddy photo-story; unfortunately, it isn't able to be embedded.

Implications - Exploding teddy bears in the name of art is a unique concept that echos some kind of lost innocence in a very visual way. Have a gander at the exploding stuffed animal art and see how it makes you feel.
