What artists have to do to sell an album these days. Well, making the album out of a giant block of sugar is a good start. For Beacon’s first LP The Ways We Separate, Brooklyn-based sculptor Fernando Mastrangelo created a 13″x13″ cast sugar housing for the vinyl record.
The Art Toast Project gives boring toasted bread a much-needed upgrade. Brought to us by Norwegian artist Ida Skivenes — famous works by Monet, Van Gogh, Pollock and others are recreated using various food items with toast as the canvas.
And it’s all documented on Instagram… See more of the project here.
Jesus is omnipresent. At least that’s what we’re taught in Sunday school. And, if we’re to believe that Jesus is everywhere, then it only makes sense that he would occasionally make an appearance in our favorite foods.
Here are a few examples of Jesus showing up unexpectedly while people are simply trying to enjoy lunch. And remember, if you’d like to intentionally print Jesus on your food, we’ve got you covered.
Finally, you can play with your food and make faces at the table — without feeling the wrath of Mom. The Food Face Dinner Plate is a blank canvas for the aspiring food artist with questionable table manners. Spaghetti goatee? A mashed potato mullet? The only limit to your creativity, is whatever’s for dinner.
Check it out over at the Foodiggity Shop.
Food & Wine recently created The Plate Project — where they asked a few notable folks from the food industry what a dinner plate might look like 35 years from now. And, rather than having to listen to a few foodies pontificate about the current state of food and its apparently doomed future — F&W had them instead get all artsy and actually create a plate.
The Plate Project, unsurprisingly, becomes a display of the bleak future of food and agriculture — with heavy emphasis on the role of pharmaceuticals and science. Also of note is a plate by culinary instructor Dave Arnold, who just went ahead and deep-fried a plate — perhaps summing up perfectly the inevitable progression from our current eating habits.
