I'd be pretty annoyed if I was sent an unwanted package with no return address... especially if it contained a severed hand.
I saw this box sitting outside one of the rooms in the flat. I was doing my dissertation at the time, so all I could do was put it in the middle of the corridor with 2 signs on it saying: 'KICK ME' and 'YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO'. How could I resist the urge to see polystyrene peanuts all over the floor?
The box was then left in our kitchen to eventually be thrown out, until I realised I could turn it into a horror pic!
Enjoy your mail!

The second unexpected delivery

Hand: me
PVA glue-based blood.

I actually prefer this to the head in a box shot, it has such an ominous feeling to it, and really feels like it could happen!

made me think of an Urban Legend kinda pic, i think that would be a cool series for you to do, i', going to try and draw a series of Urbam legands but with your photographic style it would rock, theres a competition looking for urban legen photography too here on DA, superb work

I probably would've turned the peanuts into a fetus of some sort because I recently had a few ideas about abortion ( at one point I wanted to draw a stick-fetus with a gun to its head saying "I'll take you with me" xD )

I'm actually not Anti-Abortion
however I am Anti-Irresponsible Parents
^.^

well, i can agree with you there. I was pretty taken a-back the other day when I head on the radio that abortions are now being used at a form of contraceptive (or so it seems)- i.e. teenagers going back to clinics time after time (some have been over SEVEN times) to get an abortion. I thought that was a bit sickening, to be honest. No way am I pro-life, I just feel that if I was stupid enough not to use contraceptives, I wouldn't be so stupid the next time around.
Your concept sounds really intriguing

there is that yes, but also people who can't handle parenting, like I heard of this one woman. She threw her child into the wall because she was crying too much
I've heard enough horrific stories of parents accidentally (and sometimes purposely) killing their children because they couldn't handle certain things which are obvious things that a child would do!

and in the case of someone thinking they're ready but turning out not to be, swallow yer damned pride and put the child in foster care, that is what it is there for. People who cannot take care of their children (though for that case im more for Open adoption since if the child is too young to remember and is told when they're older, they can meet their parents yada yada)

O.o holy jesus..
and i completely agree with adoption and foster care.. there are so many women desperate to have kids, but can't due to infertility. These kids seem to be rubbing it in those people's faces, and it makes me really saddened and angry that it's happening :-(
totally agreeing with you there

heheh how funny would it be if you actually got one of them throught the post, good job it looks pretty real. but would the blood still be wet i wonder? or has it been freshly prepared like a supermarket fish :P all this speculating is fun lol :D great pic ;)

:iconxerces:
Xerces Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2008  Professional Artisan Crafter
well, i'm thinking along the lines of express delivery. not all of the blood would be liquid, but maybe a little would still be liquid. i daresay there would be few mail rooms that would hold onto a box with conspicuous dried red liquid seeping through the box!
very glad you like it :-)

:O goodness, what a question :O
i think i might mention it to a superior if i saw a conspicuous bloody box! if they dismissed it, it wouldn't be my problem =D
although if i sent a box with a fake hand and fake blood, it would be interesting to see if it got to it's destination! i may try it one day ;-)

heheh, not that curious, eh? i suppose it's not really something you'd think about on a daily basis to be honest lol.
hah please do, put a hidden camera in the box so you get to see the reaction of the reciever :P
