Everyday Objects and Food Used To Recreate Everyday Objects and Food

Everyday-Objects-Optical-Illusions

Creative director Dudi Ben Simon brings us a series of optical illusions using everyday objects and food items — coincidentally to recreate everyday objects and food items. How creatively meta.

See more of Simon’s great photography work over at Instagram.

Chocolate Mill, A Large Chocolate Cylinder Containing Hidden Geometric Patterns

chocolatemill01

When it comes to chocolate… you never know what you’re gonna get. This is especially true when it comes to Chocolate Mill — a large cylinder made of chocolate that contains a series of hidden geometric patterns.

Brought to us by the collaborative efforts of Studio Wieki Somers and chocolatier Rafael Mutter, a crank-turned blade is used to reveal each layer of patterns with a kaleidoscope-type effect.

Great…but how long before we get to the nougat?

Coffee Cup Art Left Behind For Others To Find

coffee-cup-art-5

Starting the day off with coffee is good. Add some coffee cup art to the mix and suddenly your morning is a little bit more tolerable.

If you’re lucky enough to frequent the same coffee shop as artist Jimmy T., you could have that super-morning. Jimmy creates illustrations on takeaway coffee cups, and then leaves them behind for patrons of the shop to find.

Of course, this isn’t before Jimmy documents the drawings on his Tumblr blog, Morning Coffee Cup Art, where you can see his ongoing series.

The Yolkfish Will Adorably Separate Your Eggs

peleg-design-yolkfish-designboom01

Separating an egg yolk from the white can be a tricky process — with the cracking and the back and forth action. That of course, was before the Yolkfish.

Just give the Yolkfish a squeeze, let it wrap its big fish mouth around a yolk, and then it’ll adorably regurgitate the yolk into a different bowl. The Yolkfish is new at The Foodiggity Shop.

Watch the little sucker in action…

Bottled Food Sculptures Are Intriguing, Disgusting

There’s a reason why some foods are packaged in opaque cans and boxes. Artist Tom Davie was out to prove this with Bottled Food — a project that rethinks food packaging by placing the product in transparent bottles.

The result is what some might refer to as “too much information,” causing us to actually think about what really lurks behind that aluminum can or cardboard box, before we pluck it from the supermarket shelf.

At least there’s a straw included, just in case we’d like our SpaghettiOs right from the bottle.
