Students Hung I-chen, Guo Yi-hui and Cheng Yu-ti from the National Taiwan University of Art have created a display for toxic popsicles that is going viral.
The students went to over 100 different locations Taiwan to collect sewage runoff samples and turn them into popsicles. They then recreated the toxic treats using resin and displayed the final result at a design show in Taipei. They also created custom wrappers for the popsicles that reflect the location where each sample was found.
While the popsicles might look pretty, they certainly are not very appetizing. The students had to purchase a separate freezer to put the sewage samples in due to the odors they produced. Each popsicle includes any and all solid matter found in the water and 90% of the toxic popsicles featured some kind of plastic wrapper or bottle cap.
