Home is where the wifi connects automatically. Was für einige das ultimative zu-Hause-Gefühl ist, interessiert eine Schnecke wirklich nicht die Bohne. Eher so: wo ist das nächste Salatblatt? Die kleinen Schleimkriecher haben aber ein großes Problem: sie werden gerne übersehen und ehe man es sich versieht, ist man auf ihr schönes Haus getreten und hat sie in die ewigen Salatblatt-Jagdgründe befördert. Der Schwede Stefan Siverud hat sich da etwas sehr Schönes einfallen lassen und das Projekt „Snailpimp“ ins Leben gerufen. Er bemalt die Häuser der Schnecken mit ungiftigen, leuchtenden Farben und macht sie so sichtbarer für uns Menschen.

For several years, artist Stefan Siverud has been decorating snails‘ shells with colorful, eye-catching designs for his Snailpimp project. Thus far, the series has featured tiny mollusks sporting anything from a vibrant rainbow or an impressive miniature lighthouse to the McDonald’s logo. Aside from being fun, these creations are actually saving the lives of snails by allowing them to stand out.
