A KFC Bucket of Chicken That’s Also A Printer

KFC-printer-1

We’ve all been there… We’re going to town on a whole bucket o’ chicken, and we’d like to capture this moment for posterity.

The Memories Bucket is here to help. As part of their 60th Anniversary in Canada, KFC has created the bucket printer to capture those fleeting greasy moments.

Chicken-eating historians can take a picture with their smartphones and, via Bluetooth, have a Polaroid-type photo released from the bucket. Please wipe off your hands before handling your photos.

Matija-Erceg-header

Food and art come together once again. This time, foodstuffs and everyday objects combine to mess with our minds.

Serious Design is an art series by Matija Erceg, that combines ordinary foods with ordinary objects. The result… vegetable crayons, meat purses, and jazz turkeys. See more below and over at Instagram.

This Guy Makes Other Peoples’ Instagram Photos More Interesting By Drawing On Them

Sirohi-instagram

Everybody on Instagram thinks that their photos are awesome. However, when an artist such as Suraj Sirohi gets a hold of your silly faux-vintage photography, he improves them with illustration.

Created on his new Galaxy Note 3 Neo, mundane food photos become more interesting with Sirohi’s doodles. For example, your humdrum picture of oranges would’ve received a lot more likes, had there been faces on them in the first place.

See more below and over at Instagram here.

Produce Illusion, A Series of Desaturated and Monochromatic Fruit

produce-illusion

Stripping fruits of their natural color, artist Dewey Saunders and photographer Andre Rucker created Produce Illusion.

Saunders and Rucker’s choice to make the produce desaturated and monochromatic adds an interesting visual element — while the fruits remain easily recognizable by shape and texture.

They also toy with gravity, stacking these re-colored fruits into beautiful sculptures.

Foods Perfectly Color-Matched To Pantone Swatches

pms-food-match

It’s comforting to know that if we ever wanted to print something the same exact color as our favorite food, it’s now possible. Artist Inka Mathew proves this, with Tiny PMS Match — perfectly matching food to a Pantone color swatch.

Now, we can stop going to the printer and asking for “blackberry,” or “yellow Skittle-color.” Check out more of the project below and over at Mathew’s Tumblr.
