Move on over, Dee and Ricky. There is a new addition to the LEGO-playing adult family, and it is the renowned artist, Futura. As documented by photographer extraordinaire (and also Futura's son), 13th Withness, it seems as if the latest medium Futura picked out is none other than everyone's favorite building blocks of childhood. Except, don't expect plastic renditions of cubic houses and farms with frolicking LEGO children donning switchable plastic caps of hair. Futura works with highly sophisticated technical parts and fashioned what he calls "the District 9 handheld" (perhaps an alien assault rifle as used by the Prawns?) Gears, parts that seem to have come from LEGO's Robotics line of products and more gears have latched to form an ultra-complex city of railroads and futuristic buildings a la WALL-E or an alternate dimension from the Matrix. And to mix it up further, a glowing red pyramid, and well, slices of watermelon are also parts of Futura's latest creations. Whether these super bad guns are for play, for show, or something more, stay tuned. In the meantime, check out the photos, by 13th Witness, and a video, by Futura's daughter Tabatha, of Futura with his new toys. via: 13th Witness
