While I have trouble imagining what could transform a normal-sized iPhone into this bizarre construct, it’s definitely something that will catch your attention. It’s part of an installation by two Russians artists, Alexei Shulgin and Aristarkh Chernyshev, who are also known as Electroboutique.
The duo usually tries to make a statement when they create their technological pieces of art. The large iPhone becomes spiraled, kind of like the unbuilt Tatlin’s Tower, a shrine the ubiquity of smartphone in our modern society, and a comment on how the design of consumerist products are seen as an art form by many these days.
The twisty iPhone is currently part of an exhibition at the Science Museum in London, that’s open until the 14th of February, 2012. The exhibit also features a crazy wavy iPod, and other distorted electronic gadgets.
