Irony

So the definition of irony is "the expression of one's meaning by using language that normally signifies the opposite, typically for humorous or emphatic effect."  So it is taking something and changing it.  I found this image and I have no idea who the artist is or what the sculpture is made from, but the irony of it struck me as very funny.  Which is the second part of the irony definition.


Do you get the irony of this image?  What do you think of it?  Can you come up with another idea that would make a great ironic sculpture?

  2. That is really funny. There was a story once that I read, it was like this. It had a wife and her husband. They were very happy but she suspected that he was cheating on her because he would leave in the morning and not come back until the next night. Turns out that she followed him and he was a man. So she had all of her sisters and brothers chase him out of the woods and kill him hoping that he would turn back into his normal self. The wife is a wolf...

  4. I think thats pretty neat. Its ironic how in the sun the ice cream bar continues to keep its form, yet the arm begins to melt when normally its the other way around. Another ironic thing i could thing of is drawing a picture of a wedding with rain.

  5. Its pretty funny, but not quite ironic. True irony would be like getting stuck in traffic on your way to celebrate your plan for decreasing the amount of traffic jams in the city. To make it better, i would make it so that the icecream would be dissapointed at its melting human.

  6. This looks really weird and really gross. It is creative to have the person melting with the ice cream. It looks kinda like maybe wax. It must have been a really hot day? Another ironic thing to draw would be maybe like a truck or car with flames actually on fire.

  7. i love creative irony in this. i like how the artist had the arm melting into the drain. im not too good at this but maybe making coffee and pouring coffee into the coffee pot instead of water and have water come out as the coffee would?

  10. This picture is pretty funny and is very good in the way that it makes it look like the ice cream doesn't melt and the person does. I like it a lot.

  14. The person is melting instead of the ice cream on the sidewalk. I think is actually pretty funny. You could do something else like a money tree since money doesn't actually grow on trees.

  15. The person melted instead of the ice cream. This pretty cool how did this and thought of the scheme. You could do a car that can drive on water.

  16. Well, I am not very good with coming up with Irony. I would say i understand why it is because the heat of sun and all of that. It does make you think a little about what it is. The hand thing does catch you attention, and then it grabs you with the melting part of it.

  17. I think this is very funny. The hand is the thing melting instead of the ice cream; it is very clever. It looks like it is made out of ice cream. Maybe of a fish being caught on a line with a sour gummy worm as bait... I think that would be very ironic.

  19. I love the irony of this, and find it quite hilarious. When I imagine an ironic sculpture, for some reason, a cake killing a person with a knife comes to mind. I think it would be a funny sculpture to make, and hopefully I can do it in class.

  20. this is cool because normally the icecream would be melting and not the hand this is so cool.

  21. thats just great. how they did it is genius. this really took me by surprise. props to that guy for being so creative.

  22. That's really cool. I though it was. Looks like this person had karma it's like a opposite and switched around around. Wish that can in life, but's funny!

  26. This is very cool. But it also looks kinda gross. But it is pretty cool.

  27. First off this must of taken a long time to make this. I think it has good meaning behind it. I think it shows a second chance being given to someone or something . But at the same time if you were to take this of the street the piece of art wouldn't really make since which is why i don't really like it .

  28. This does not look appetizing at all

  29. Another ironic thing would be if you replaced the cone with a glass of water, so that then water would be flowing on the ground instead of ice cream. Because you wouldnt expect the hand to be melting

  30. Its pretty cool and its a really good sculpture

  31. This is a little weird. Very unique, it looks like it would take a very long time to do something like this.

  34. This almost looks like it is made out of wax and that is the irony of it. It looks as if it is melting on a sidewalk.

  35. This is very ironic how the arm is the object melting and not the ice cream. This looks very interesting and looks as if its made out of candle wax.
