Artist Transforming Porn Star Colby Keller Into 30-Foot Merman: WATCH

Colby Keller is the subject of many a fantasy, but MFA candidate Cameron Stalheim has a particularly original one: He wants to turn Colby into a 30-foot merman.

Insert tail joke here.

Casting the gay porn star’s body in silicone for a monumental sculpture, Stalheim is creating this mythical beast for his MFA graduating thesis at the Maryland Institute College of Art.

“Stemming from my experience as a gay male from the Midwest and transitioning into the gay culture of the east coast, this sculpture, the first in a new series of work, questions the relationship between fantasy, reality and the objectification that happens in between,” says Stalheim.

We don’t know about all that, we just think Colby is peachy keen.

Stalheim has launched a Kickstarter to help fund his commendable undertaking, but he’s less that 50% of the way there, with 20 days to go. Among the various incentives, a $5,000 donation will get you a hand-molded Colby Keller torso suitable for mounting.

Gee, we’d think for that kind of money you’d get a little face time with our favorite he-man.
