Art-Dispensing Gachapon: 50 bit figures by Three
Hailing from Fukushima, the art trio Three have created a limited edition set of 50 small-scale sculptures. They were made from cutting up anime figures into pieces, melting them together and then reconstituting them into a cubic structure while preserving the eyes on top.
The 50 works were inserted into capsules and placed inside a gachapon vending machine. Part of the magic is not knowing what you're going to get.
