CREATIVE ARTS COMPETITION

MIT hosted the The MIT Creative Arts Competition is an annual contest designed to encourage arts-focused startups at the Institute. The $15,000 prize is offered as a grant to help launch the winning enterprise and enable the recipient(s) to join the ranks of MIT’s successful startup founders. Piccles was part of 2018 MIT Creative Arts Competition, and won the Audience Choice Award! This was one of the pieces that we displayed.

WHAT'S FOR LUNCH?

The age old question “What’s for lunch” passes through the lips of everyone from children to urban office workers on a daily basis.

Saying what you want is one thing, but drawing it is a whole other kettle of fish, which, coincidentally, some people seem to be thinking about for lunch.

RESTING PICKLE

Resting Pickle

Jun. 2016  Somewhere over the East Coast between Boston and Atlanta

The first pickle ever Piccled, this was later scrutinized by museum officials and deemed a fake. The author of this piece seemed to have created it to convey the idea of Piccling a pickle without having the platform yet to do so.

Owl in Festive Hat

 

This drawing is part of a larger collection of woodland creatures who received holiday hats for a timely resurgence during the winter months. Here, we see a newborn owl with wings outstretched, yearning for their mother who left the nest to hunt for a juicy Christmas critter.
