Dec 12 2009You Need Help: Guy Makes Art Out Of Dust


Paul Hazelton collects dust and then shapes it into things and calls it art. Me? I vacuum it up LIKE A NORMAL GOTDAMN PERSON. I swear, whatever happened to chiseling marble?

'I think it all has something to do with the fact that I was brought up in an immaculate environment that was really clean,' said Mr Hazelton.

'It all started when I noticed the dust on a mask and was able to pull it off. I started collecting dust and working with it, finding ways of turning it into three-dimensional structures.'

'Humans were supposedly made from dust, so it is interesting to create other things with it,' added Mr Hazelton, from Margate, Kent.

'It is a kind of recycling. The reaction of people when they see the art is one of incredulity.

Incredulity is right. As in, "THIS NUTCASE IS F***ED IN THE HEAD." Oh, and another thing -- I WAS NOT MADE FROM DUST, PAUL. I was made with cookie batter and star-sprinkles AND GOD BAKED ME PERFECTLY.

Hit the jump for a shot of a briefcase and skeleton made out of the dust.



Incredible sculptures made with dust

If you save dryer lint you can spin it into yarn and knit a sweater with it. For free. It's grey with flecks of red. This also is useless art.

I think it's creepy in a cool way

Holy smokey pants, I have that much dust on my bookshelf, I'm going to try and make something like this and put it on top of my best friends birthday cake; it should look teh awesomes! (my blog) =)

@4 no it isn't.
@8 no it isn't.

"Thanks to Add Loves Elmo, who knows what dust is really made of."

"House dust is mainly made up of dirt and grit, but it varies according to place, season and other factors such as pets."

QI, my friends.

"The quantity and composition of house dust varies greatly with seasonal and environmental factors such as the surroundings, exchange of outside air, age of the house, building materials and their condition, and the quantity of furniture and carpets, as well as their state of preservation. The composition of dust also depends upon the ventilation, and heating systems, cleaning habits, activities of the occupants or users of a room, etc. House dust consists of inorganic and organic matter, and the relative proportions of these components may vary considerably. Kindergartens dust often consists almost entirely of inorganic materials like sand, loam, and clay from sand pits. On the other hand, house dust from the homes of animal owners with worn out carpets consists nearly completely of organic material. In a study of 318 house samples, the proportion of organic matter ranged from between 95% (Butte and Walker, 1994). Fergusson, et al. (1986) reported the organic content of house dust from 11 homes in Christchurch, New Zealand, ranged from 25.7% to 56.5%. Floor dust from seven Danish offices had a mean organic fraction of 33%"
(Mølhave et al., 2000).

I wonder where he gets all the dust?

Well I guess this is better than this guy making sculptures out of severed body parts and feces.....Because that would just be weird.

@everyone who sneezed...... can I borrow some tissue?

The skeleton looks like it's real and just has cobwebs all over....hmmm
