Really, really, really, really BIG things.

Here's another weird item on my bucket list: a Claes Oldenburg art tour.

Because if there's one thing that tickles my sense of the absurd just as much as really, really small things, it's really, really big things.

Plantoir, Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen
For instance, I really want to go visit Venice, California if only to see this crazy (and very real) building. Why am I not surprised Frank Gehry also had a hand in this somehow?

That must be a crazy legacy to live up to, huh? That guy who makes really, really big things. Then again I guess it can't be as weird as being immortalized as that guy who bends spoons or smashes watermelons for a living.
