Beautiful Railway Dioramas Built Atop Pringles Cans

RIMG00101

Pringles cans… they’re not just for getting your hand stuck in them. Artist Akihiro Morohoshi uses the deadly hand traps as a base for his beautiful railway dioramas.

Only part of a series of railways set in ephemeral townscapes, Morohoshi also builds these extraordinary scenes upon gumball machines, matchboxes and electric guitars.

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?

Eastern European Cities Recreated With Food

1

The last project we covered by artist Anna Kevilla Joyce was for the birds. Now, the artist is back with another awesome series of food on plate.

Joyce created a series of Eastern European cities, using ingredients that capture the essence of the respective place. From Prague and Budapest to Warsaw and Bucharest… the series covers the under-appreciated beauty of the right side of Europe.

The Foodnited States Of America, A Pun-Fueled Series of US States Made From Food

FOODNITED-STATES-HEADER

In addition to being the creator of Foodiggity.com, I’m also the father of an eight-year-old. And, when most of the material covered on your site could best be described as ‘juvenile food-related nonsense,’ a curious youngster is gonna wanna get involved.

It began innocently enough with, “Dad… What if you made States, but like, they were made of food, like?” My response was something along the lines of, “That’s been done to death already, son… Go to bed.” Then, the heir to the Foodiggity empire added, “But what if they like had funny names like New Pork or New Jerky, like?” Now, we were on to something.

So, with an idea set forth by an eight year-old, and contributions from Dad and others, we give you The Foodnited States of America.

The project will be based over at Instagram, hashtag #foodnitedstates. We already have Foodnited States worked out for most of the fifty, but we welcome suggestions for more.

Post your State food puns to us here. If we use it, we’ll give you a shout-out. You’ll be contributing to a fun project and perhaps helping an eight-year-old get an ‘A’ in social studies. F-S-A!! F-S-A!!
