Some people call it weird, others call it… weird! Here are 5 strange art pieces that make you think “huh?”

5. Imagine coming home to a nice big bed of…legos.

Yes, legos. James May and volunteers built a 2-story house  with a working toilet and hot shower  using over 3 million legos in Dorking, Surrey. James lived in the house for one whole day. The home was put up for sale, valued at $750,000 and no one wanted it. Surprising. James hoped an inventor or art museum would be interested but when the bidding time ran out, the house had to be destroyed and the legos were given to children.

4. I can smell the tobacco just looking at this picture!

Artist Tom Deininger makes his art out of used cig butts. He made a 5-foot long sea shell (gross) and a cute but smelly bunny out of used cigarette filters. Articles claim his pieces reek of the stench. Tom Deininger


3. Talk about fashion!

Montreal artist Jana Sterbak made a dress made out of raw meat. It’s suppose to be a reminder to not stress about society’s expected image of us since our bodies are no more than meat attached to bones. Canadians weren’t too happy about the masterpiece in fact, they were so mad that they mailed in rotten pieces of food to the gallery. Anyone have some meat seasoning?

2. Okay, this one is a little crazy, even for us. 

An artist made art out of herself when she decided to give live birth online in an art gallery in 2011. Her “art piece” was titled “The Birth Of Baby X.” We would link the video but we chose to not ruin your appetite. Thank us later.

1. What do you do when your precious cat dies?

You make him into a helicopter. Dutch artist Bart Jansen was devastated when his cat Orville Wright died (named after one of the brothers who invented first successful airplane) so he had a taxidermist and helicopter expert turn the cat into a fun toy. #Why

Jansen said the Orvillecopter is part of a visual art project which pays tribute to his cat Orville, by making it fly after it was killed by a car.
