Task One has sent up photos of his newest custom, a Nosferatu he's calling Futura Biotica. The photos (taken by Brad Topolewski) show off the Nosferatu, painted in a flat black coating on the outside with some additional sculpting and cutting work done by Task. It's about 12 inches tall and packed with 43 working LEDs, allowing it to display a lot of color. I think cramming so many LEDs into this oddly-shaped piece isn't what makes it impressive: it's that they're arranged to make it look good, and to make me like a vinyl collectible I otherwise don't give any thought to.
The custom Nosferatu will be on display and for sale during the Land of Misfits designer toy exhibition. The show opens Friday, Dec. 7 and runs through Jan 13 at The Center for Visual Artists (200 N. Davie St., Box 13, Greensboro, N.C.).
