Sunburn Art

Have you ever been sunburned? Did you find your exposed areas a deep red color, itching badly with your skin peeling off?

Graham Plumb, got his backside sunburned, and instead of suffering in silence, he took his peeled skin and put together a map of the world. I saw it and it looks very cool, but if you are easily grossed out, don't see it.

You can find the map here.

  4. Really creative! haha It doesn't even look like peeled skin. It looks more like the remnants of a white balloon. Decent map as well! Should I be worried that I'm not grossed out?

    sever: I never got sunburned also, except once when I was on a boat ride for 4 hours under the hot Kuwait sun in the middle of summer.

    adorra: ew but nice.

    daydreamer: I wonder what his next project will be? maybe a wallet out of his sunburned skin.

    DG: Very accurate map, he must have lots of time and skin to spare.
