Of all places, I found this artist on Gawker. They used it in a very insensitive article, but it’s not Stephen’s fault. I found myself curious about this whole casting in chocolate idea, especially because I’m a big fan of attraction/repulsion art and his chocolate happens to be cast from wounds. He also created a chocolate replica of a post-explosion suicide bomber (okay, talk about insensitive). I’m definitely more curious about how much he had to pay the Moscow morgue to allow for all his on-cadaver mold making. Not much, I’m guessing. Oh, and the last photos are from his chocolate waterboarding series (can’t it just be chocolateboarding?).
