Brilliant idea, and very real: “Grand Old Party” is a data visualization project that took Gallup approval ratings for Republican GOP candidates within a time frame, projected the data as butt plug shapes (finally, the GOP is anal-safe), printed them with a 3D printer and cast them in black silicone.
“Grand Old Party” – GOP – is a set of butt plugs. Matthew Epler explains,
Each shape is determined by voter approval ratings amongst registered republican voters for each of the GOP presidential candidates.
The height is a measurement of time, beginning December 10, 2011 and ending on April 1, 2012 (bottom to top).
The butt plugs cost $65 each, though Perry and Bachmann are cheaper because they’re so little.
