Dangerous Popsicles by Wei Li

San Francisco-based artist and designer Wei Li created a collection of frozen treats that are inspired by cacti and life-threatening viruses, titled 'Dangerous Popsicles'.

"Have you ever licked a cactus? Probably not. But it might be interesting to try it out, in another form."

"Dangerous Popsicles are a collection of weird shaped popsicles inspired by cacti and life-threatening viruses. What will happen when we put these dangerous things on one of our most sensitive organs, our tougues? Does pain really bring pleasure? Is there beauty in user-unfriedly things?"

"Dangerous Popsicles create a unique sensory experience. Before tasting with your tongue, you first taste with your eyes and mind. The popsicles are nothing but water and sugar, but ideas of deadly viruses and the spikiness of cacti are enough to stimulate your senses, even before your first taste."

"The shapes of the popsicles are first modeled and 3D-printed using Objet Connex 500 3D printer. The 3D-printed shapes are then used as originals to make silicone molds. These silicone molds, mostly two-part while a few four-part, are used to cast popsicles."
