Photo of the Day: Jellybean Children


[Flickr: Khaz]

"Life-size jellybean children and butterflies," said my friend while we walked past The National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia. My first thought: Huh? And then I looked up to see that he was just reading off the banner outside the museum.

We didn't go in the museum to witness the jellybean children for ourselves, but I found this photo from Flickr user khaz to get a closer look at the installation by artist Sandy Skoglund. There are mirrors on both sides to create the illusion of neverending jellybean children whose heads are twisted 180°. They just go on. Forever. (Skoglund also made jellybean adults in her photograph Shimmering Madness viewable at
