50 Shades of Food, A Photo Spoof of Fifty Shades of Grey Featuring Food and Sex Toys

With the film version of Fifty Shades of Grey finally unleashed, the harsh reviews and parodies of the film are plentiful. Which leads us to 50 Shades of Food by photographer Bryan Regan.

The series, juxtaposing submissive humans for food items, includes a donut on a butt plug, a nimple-clamped lemon, and a poor little tied-up honey bear. At the very least, 50 Shades of Food could be a bit hunger-inducing… whether you’re “into that sort of thing” or not.

More can be found below and over at Regan’s site here. Sorta NSFW.

Pizza Is The New Black, A Series of Monochromatic ‘Pizza’ With Unusual Toppings

3

What actually constitutes a pizza? It needs to be round, sometimes square, with a base preferably made of dough. Then it needs to have stuff on it.

With those criteria in mind, Pizza Is The New Black is a series of the most interesting pizza we’ve seen in a while. The monochromatic photos include a pizza representing one color — including the dough and background. The toppings, although mostly inedible, are only meant to blend into its color scheme.

The series is brought to us by design studio Black Pizza, chef Julie Basset and photographer Erwan Fichou. One yellow pizza with extra rubber ducky, please!

A Portrait Created With 20,000 Steeped Tea Bags

Red-Hong-Yi

Whether it’s with coffee, chopsticks, or lunch… artist Red Hong Yi is very good at creating art with whatever’s available. This time, the Malaysian artist wanted to create a large-scale piece that would pay tribute to her homeland and the process of making the Malaysian sweet tea, Teh Tarik.

This time, Red’s medium of choice was about 20,000 tea bags, steeped to create varying shades of color and tone. The used tea bags were then placed together into panels, and then hung to form the picture of a vendor pulling tea.

Be sure to check out the video below too… Red’s creative process is pure awesome. Her tea-pouring skills… not so much.

Citrus and peppers make up a C, while Zinc (Zn) is created with beans and seeds. See more of the delicious typography here.

Chocolatexture, Chocolates That Represent Onomatopoeic Japanese Words Used To Describe Texture

chocolatexture11_akihiro_yoshida

When we think of chocolate, the words “yum” and “gimme more” often come to mind. However, when an artist such as Oki Sato designs a set of chocolates, they tend to say a bit more… but still “yum.”

When Sato was asked to design chocolates by Maison et Objet, the pre-eminent design show in France, he came up with Chocolatexture. The series represents Japanese words that are used to describe the way objects look and feel. It’s OK… I had to Google “onomatopoeic” too.

Four-hundred sets of Chocolatexture were created, and will be sold during the event in Paris starting Jan. 23.
