LOVE BOMB (aka FAT BOY) is an original life sized art sculpture by PHUNK, which was shown at their solo exhibition titled “Universality” at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Taipei in 2006. Based on the concept that “Love is the most powerful force in the world”. The atomic bomb is the ultimate symbol of mankind’s creative genius and destructive nature. They created a technologically advanced object with a sole purpose and function of mass destruction. PHUNK wanted to build a LOVE BOMB to communicate and spread the message that the most powerful force in the world is actually Love…. only Love can change the world…. not bombs.
Mighty Jaxx worked with PHUNK to release this 12 inches tall version of the Love Bomb. The process was not easy but with the help of project partner 3D Matters, we have attained the final prototype. Love Bomb will be released at Art Stage Singapore 2013. It is now available for pre-order here.
