Food And Everyday Objects Juxtaposed Is Serious Design

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.

More Foods Carefully Arranged To Form Gradients and Patterns

blincoe-instagram

Photographer Emily Blincoe likes to arrange things neatly. Lucky for us, she also likes to take pictures, and documents her careful arrangements for all of us to enjoy.

There’s something very comforting about consistency in color and pattern — evidenced by a deconstructed bowl of Fruity Pebbles, a perfectly-segmented pizza, or consistent pickles. Nothing like consistent pickles.

See more below, and other neatly-arranged objects at Blincoe’s Instagram.

Coffee Stain Motorcycle Illustrations

coffee-1

Coffee stains have been known to ruin perfectly good tables, and some of the doodles we worked on so hard at that staff meeting. However, sometimes the ring stains are purposely placed on paper, and used for actual works of art.

Coffee Stain Motorcycles is a series by illustrator Carter Asmann. Coffee stain rings act as wheels, while the motorcycle is then carefully illustrated around them. Try a few of your own at that next boring meeting… or you can just check out more works by Asmann here.

Just Another Jello Brick in The Wall


70

Brooklyn-based artists Lisa Hein and Robert Seng create jiggly walls made of Jello.

Bruise (pictured above) is the latest Jello wall built by the duo. It was assembled over three weeks using Jello and mortar mixed — cooked and assembled on site, with lower layers decaying early on in the process. All in all, it’s just another jello brick in the wall.

Creepy Portraits Created By Covering Models in Junk Food

Artist James Ostrer recently created a series of grotesque portraits titled Wotsit all about — covering models with various forms of junk food.

Presented as a commentary on the dangerous methods of mass food production and our sugar obsession, Osterer takes advantage of the vibrant artificial colors of various junk foods and candies to create very bright and creepy portraits. See more of the project here.
