Designer Wei Li has created a collection of oddly-shaped popsicles inspired by cacti and life-threatening viruses

Designer and artist Wei Li's latest series ‘Dangerous Popsicles‘ aims to use unpleasant aesthetics in order to explore how people react to user-unfriendliness. It uses design to further delve into how visuals play a part in our sense of taste.

Li is a graduate of Stanford’s M.A. in Product Design program and uses her work to explore fantasies and desires with visual, visceral and whimsical language. She often incorporates pure sensations to push the boundaries of people's comfort zones.
