A group of students in Sao Paulo, Brazil, recently constructed a giant monkey out of thousands of flip-flops! Designed for the Pixelshow 2010 [2] this fun sculpture currently lies innocently in a local park ready to amuse and entertain passersby on their daily strolls. And if you’re concerned about the final destination of all this colorful footwear, don’t worry – it’s almost summertime in São Paolo, and plenty of people are ready to trade in their boots for something more breathable.
