Florentijn Hofman’s Fat Monkey made entirely out of flipflops!

Fat Monkey (Macaco Gordo)
Sao Paulo 2010
5 x 4 x 15 meters
Inflatable and flip flops

The Fat Monkey is a site specific work which was created out of the question from the Pixelshow to make a sculpture during their conference in 2010. Made with the help of local students and made from the brazilian icon; the flip flop which obviously works as one of the 10.000 pixels. The fat monkey is a work in the series Obeastitas.
