threadcaking, anyone?

There's something very 'internetty' about this lovely idea. Threadless are asking fans* to make cakes of their favourite T-shirt designs.

*[Is 'fans' a reasonable term to use? Fans feels passive. But people that engage with this kind of thing are anything but. I suppose these days the word fan means something very different.]


That cake is an accepted 'medium' for T-shirt advocacy speaks layers (sorry) about our effortless participation adoption of recombinant culture. The fluidity of ideas and media has reached a point where we can instantly accept the metamorphosis of an idea into an unusual new form with no explanation necessary.

I love it.
