Watch a Wax House Melt Down in 30 Days (video & photos)

  • A few centuries ago a candle making factory stood here....

    This is the journey of house No 40 in Southwark street, near London Bridge. It was short-lived: having been made by wax, the house literately came to its knees after about a month as it gradually melted. Behind this brilliant-made-out-of-childhood-dreams-p­roject, was British artist Alex Chinneck. The project, known as "A pound of flesh for 50p", was inspired by and made in remembrance of a candle making factory which stood there couple of centuries ago.

    Artist Alex Chinneck constructed this full-sized, two-story wax house exhibit in London, England as part of the Merge Festival. Called "A Pound of Flesh for 50p", the structure was made entirely of 8,000 paraffin wax bricks and was designed to melt over the course of 30 days. Watch the process yourself in this incredible time lapse! Credit: UpCycle.Club.London
