In this video, Jake from Zoomdoggle recreates Barack Obama's famous image using (allegedly) 21,156 thumb tacks. If that count is right, that's one thumb tack for each delegate. Poetic.

Zoomdoggle's mission is to simply have fun, but maybe in this case fun has become art...

Implications - Art is already an experimental form of expression, calling individuals to create reflections of their imaginations in a tangible form. When the subject matter they decide to depict has been done over and over again, artists don't need to abandon their dreams of making a unique work of art; instead, creatives can reinvent classic images by exploring new mediums and different styles to introduce new twists to familiar sights.
