It's Zuckerberg's FACE made out of BOOKS, get it? Cute pun aside, this video of artist Red Hong is pretty cool to watch.

There was a problem rendering this video - it may have been deleted.

From Laughing Squid:

The project, which was created for Delta Air Lines at TED2014, used an algorithm to determine a "Soul Mate" for each user after their Twitter stream, and then displayed that social stream as well. After leaving, each half of the "Soul Mate" received a tweet connecting them.

Answer: yes! Artist Rachel Knoll cataloged tweets containing the hashtag #nobodylistens and used a text-to-speech program to broadcast the tweets throughout an empty forest via a megaphone. Now, somebody really does listen (depending on your definition of "somebody").

Brooklyn-based street artist/hacker KATSU has created a portrait of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg using his own feces.

It is described as a rendering of a tech giant who is “in control of more information than the government created from the compromising bio-matter of the artist.”

KATSU, who is known around the city for his signature skull tag and work with a fire extinguisher, has mocked Zuckerberg before in a series of wheat pastes depicting him with a black eye.

This latest piece is part of his first solo show called “Remember the Future,” featuring a variety of works that intersect art and technology.

The others are not quite as bizarre as the poop painting but strange in their own ways as you can see in the link below.

The exhibit runs through Feb 22 at The Hole.
