The Golden Roach Project by Miklos Kiss is a clever form of guerrilla art, considering it's commandeering spaces that are normally used for willingly hosting such exhibits.

Kiss sneaks into museums such as the Pompidou in Paris or the Tate Modern in Britain, and places the roaches in spots that make them look like a part of the already on-display exhibit. He's even placed items in the gift shop that people can take, since buying them could be tricky without a price tag. One lucky person who picks up the roach will receive a real golden-plated critter, since these ones are covered in a fake metallic gold-like plate.

As long as people aren't completely shocked to see these bugs on the ground, this project is sure to impress. Photo Credits: designboom, goldenroach
