Giant baby head masks? Yeah, we talk about that and more with artist Landon Meier

Last week, the Internetz finally caught wind of Denver-based artist Landon Meier's exceptionally creepy Hyperflesh masks, most notably with a 2009 video of a creepy family walking down the 16th Street Mall with baby heads on. Meier's masks have got a bit more traction recently with a perfect storm of accidental publicity, from a Mets game to a performance piece on Youtube and a quick shot on Mythbusters. Meier sells the masks for $250 a piece on his website, but it's not going to stop with just the babies. We caught up with him to talk about the masks, the videos and more.
