The Cut, A Stop-Motion Animation of Cross-Sectioned Fruits and Vegetables

the-cut

The next time we’re doing something as mundane as slicing fruits and vegetables, perhaps we should take a second to appreciate what’s going on inside.

Photographer Carl Pendle is not only aware of the beauty hidden in the cross-sections of fruits and vegetables, but he created The Cut — a stop-motion film that shows the process of exposing fruit’s and vegetable’s innards, set to a sick beat. Check it out, and perhaps it’ll to get you in the mood to slice stuff.

Skitchen, Fruits and Vegetables Skateboard and Kickflip Through The Kitchen

SKITCHEN-1

Skitchen, a food photography series by Paris-based artist and photographer Benoit Jammes, brings us into the secret sporting life of fruits and vegetables.

When no one is around to see it, various forms of produce nosegrind and kickflip through the kitchen. Whether it’s a banana grinding down a rolling pin, or a potato ollie — the produce appears to be having a good time, before they’re literally shredded and consumed.

Anatomical Illustrations Created With Fruits and Vegetables

For anyone looking for a new appreciation of the human form and produce… look no further than these works by illustrator Dan Cretu.

Taking inspiration from vintage anatomy illustrations, Cretu uses the texture and form of fruits and vegetables to create musculature.

The result may inspire the viewer to look at the human form a bit differently, or make you want a salad.

Peaches Wearing Panties Exist And Are For Sale In China

It’s an inescapable fact that peaches look like butts. To help perpetuate this, a certified-awesome fruit vendor in China slipped some sexy undies on the fuzzy fruits.

The pantie-clad peaches are being sold to help celebrate Qixi Festival — China’s version of Valentine’s Day. How romantic.

Inglorious Fruits and Vegetables, An Initiative That Encourages Sales of Ugly Produce

inglorious-fruits

Poor fruits and vegetables… Why you so ugly? 

It’s no secret that we shop with our eyes. And, because we can be so superficial, especially when it comes to produce, food waste has become a global issue.

Intermarché recently launched Inglorious Fruits and Vegetables to help change our perspective on unfortunate-looking produce, and hopefully cut down on food waste in the process.

First, a produce section was populated with the Grotesque Apple, Ridiculous Potato, Hideous Orange, Failed Lemon, Disfigured Eggplant, Ugly Carrot, and the Unfortunate Clementine at a discounted price. And, when that wasn’t enough to sway our flippant shoppers, a line of soups and juices made with these deformed foods were offered.

The result helped empty the shelves of these fruits and veggies, that may have been hard on the eyes, but will be nice to your belly and wallet. Hideous Orange Juice, anyone?
