Weekly Contest 4/20: Art Recreation


Recreate a famous work of art, and nominate one for Professor Kung to do too! Folks all around the world have been recreating works of art using household items (see examples here and here), and you can too! Here’s what you’ll do:

  1. Find a work of art that you think you could recreate using household items
  2. Gather the household items you need
  3. Stage that photo and submit it below!

There will be two ways of earning tokens during this contest. First, you can do the re-creations yourself– the best recreation will earn TWO townhouse tokens. But you can also nominate a picture for Professor Kung to recreate! These submissions will be judged on a balance of do-ability and funniness, and the nomination we choose will be awarded with one townhouse token. Submit here: forms.gle/7e4tFzHvhNATJAzn8.


Last week’s contest was a short story contest, and the winner is Matthew Oberstaedt! Congratulations Matthew! His story was as follows:

One otherwise inconspicuous Wednesday, Jacky is cleaning out her childhood bedroom. She’s basically just throwing all her childhood memories into a big black trash bag, because, you know, who needs them anymore when you’re in college, right? So in go her beloved stuffed animals, her soccer trophies, her prom photos, and so on. But then, she comes across something really, really sentimental for her – a self-portrait her grandmother had painted just before her death. Jacky feels a tear come to her eye, then wipes it away, shrugs, and throws the painting out.

Ha! I bet you, the ignorant reader, thought that portrait was going to be the thing that changed Jacky’s life, right? Nope! I just totally subverted your expectations, and I feel pretty darn good about it, too!

Anyway, once she throws away the portrait, Jacky comes upon a portal to another dimension that she had made as a kid and forgotten about. Then she enters it and I guess some kind of life changing experience happens in there. Not sure what exactly; I didn’t come up with the specifics. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Anyway, it inspires her to become an animal rights activist or something else cool like that.
