Atlanta based artist Mark Wentzel has used Eames Lounge Chairs and their ottomans to create quite a stir and visual statement. Although we can appreciate his artistic representation of his societal views, all we can think about is the poor chairs that have been used for the project...

Mark wanted to allude to the ideas of global obesity and consumption along with the potential cooperation among artists, designers, scientists and manufacturers in order to address such issues.

Here's to hoping the chairs were Craigslist finds that needed some new a makeover anyway! Read more about the project over at Core77.
