Artist Creates Plaster Versions of Everything He’s Eaten Over The Past Year

foodchain

What appears to be nothing more than an exercise in minimalist food art, is actually a pretty intense project by Israeli-Dutch artist Itamar Gilboa.

The Food Chain Project is a pop-up art installation, that is not only an extensive collection of food and drinks sculpted in plaster, but is representative of everything the artist had consumed over a period of 365 days.

Over 8,000 items are represented in stark white, and is meant to call attention to global food issues. All of the food items are on sale, with proceeds donated to organizations such as FairFood International and Youth Food Movement.

An Anamorphic Sculpture of Big Ben Made From Biscuits and Chocolate

Look, kids… Big Ben, Parliament! However, this Big Ben is not what it seems. Sugar artist Michelle Wibowo, of Michelle Sugar Art, created what’s being called the first anamorphic food art, with Big Ben Made From Biscuits and Chocolate.

Viewed from the side, several British landmarks are represented in confectionaries. However, when looking at the sculpture through the provided frame, they all come together to create the unmistakable clock tower.

The sculpture was created for the ‘Unexpected Cooking’ event at the Aéroville Shopping Centre in Paris. Great, if you can get left.
