During a long road trip, there's nothing more entertaining than coming across a (tastefully) vandalized street sign. We're not technically condoning acts of vandalism — simply appreciating the artistic license. We've all seen crude street signs, such as speed limits becoming 'pee' limits, or the heralded 'For Lease Navidad'. But others with deeper messages blow their competitors out of the water.
French artist Mademoiselle Maurice has two fun new pieces up this month as part of the 2013 ARTAQ Festival in Angers, France.

Berg’s freestanding card structures are based on a grid-like arrangement, which Berg tested in a structural engineering lab to support 660 lbs per square foot ― using no tape, no glue, no folding, and no tricks.
If you dress the sculptures as hipsters it gives them an awesome new look. They become contemporary and totally badass. Needless to say, they look a lot more human. They look like people who we can picture in our lives. This beats Madame Tussauds.
Every matchbox needs a little decoration on the outside. But sometimes package designers go the extra mile to make your moment with fire a truly trippy experience. Here are some of the weirdest matchboxes we've ever seen.
