Art of the Toilet Paper Roll by JUNIOR FRITZ JACQUET
French artist Junior Fritz Jacquet has been fascinated by paper since a very young age. Among various other paper and cardboard creations, he transforms plain toilet paper rolls into remarkable miniature masks. His technique is inspired by origami, in that it uses a single piece and folds it into a shape, but has a unique smoothness that deviates from the sharpness and jagged edges of origami, creating shapes that are astonishingly human. The masks are sculpted by hand, then coated with shellac and different pigments. A testament to the power of taking something incredibly simple and transforming it into something impressively expressive, each piece exudes a complexity of human emotion conveyed in just a few brilliantly orchestrated folds.

I mean seriously, their sound is NUTS. And the lyrics? So intense and fucked up but also like super fun at the same time.
Like shiit check this out:
"If I could, I’d kiss your lips so hard your entire face would bruise/Write your name in blood on every wall, it would make the evening news/I’d chain our feet together so that you could never leave/
I’d make you love me so much you’d have to ask permission to BREATHE.”
So fucking scary! But also who hasn’t felt that level of “I want you”. Summer Camp steps it up past the billions of other vanilla “I want you” songs and hits right in that crazy spot we’re all scared of but secretly recognize as a real thing. There is a reason Law & Order SVU cops talk to any and all love interests as potential suspects first, y’knowwhatimean!
I get crushes like a.. like a heat-seeking missile. Once I decide I’m into that, I’m just like “fucking WIFE me right now because we’re obviously perfect for each other and don’t even pretend like I’m not awesome” and then I pursue until everything explodes! Which means we’re either dating or probably not speaking.
It’s not the most graceful tactic, but as this band so clearly and beautifully illustrates, infatuation is literally INSANE. And everyone experiences that. I’ve never written a guy’s name in blood on a wall in a passionate show of affection or anything but I’ve absolutely felt the bright red lit-up crazy button in my head. This song is just a perfect portrait of that.
