Although, at first appearance, these appear to be some kind of new and awesome fruit chews, they’re actually an art project to help bring awareness to the industrialization of produce.
The student art project, cm-VEGE by Takuma Kamata, paints a grim picture of where we may be headed with genetic modification. With the use of PVC pipe, acrylic paint, cardboard, wood, and other materials — Kamata reinvents fruits and vegetables in cylindrical form, imagining that they’d be easier for suppliers to ship.
They would certainly be easier to slice. See more of the project below.
