HIT ‘N’ LICK IT

HIT ‘N’ LICK IT  is a montage of fictional ads, made with thousands of cornstarch packing peanuts (bio-fi packing material). I connected them one by one and painted sections to create text-based signs, scrambling from a 4-meter high-striker (a machine at funfairs for testing your strength). In unison the packing peanuts act as pixelated tapestries, banner ads and GIFs.
