Unless I read the description, I wasn’t aware this is a series ads for the cookware company Eva Solo and just thought they are some interesting photography project about the food and recipe. Not sure is that a successful design or not. However, its minimalist appearance and neat arrangement of food is quite appealing as a visual recipe. But anyway, here is the words from the artist about the idea behind this project: We tried to show a product and ingredients together, illustrating a certain dish ideally made in that specific product. The images both function as a presentation of a product and as inspiration to various recipes.
We all have built our own particular vision of the world for ourselves, visions that have a lot in common with those of our friends, partners and family and gradually less to more distant people and strangers. However, this shouldn’t be only about lack communication in modern societies. Barcelona-based Cinta Vidal tried to show an understandable and tangible image of this notion of people’s minds building and drifting to self-comforting worlds, maybe staying there for a while and maybe coming back together for an instant. To manifest this vision, Vidal created below below gravity-defying paintings and telling us “the startling beauty of a world filled with endless pockets and perspectives.”
Taking inspiration from vintage anatomy illustrations, food artist and designer Dan Cretu uses the texture and form of fruits and vegetables to recreate the human anatomy. His latest series features the skins of watermelons, cucumbers and eggplants arranged to form an incredibly realistic-looking face and neck, a flexed arm, and a pair of muscular legs, mighty chest and back. Let’s look at our body from a bit different angle with these edible anatomy creation.
Watermelon Face and Neck
Using everyday objects that he collected from the streets of Berlin, German artist Martin Roller constructs some creative mash-ups. In Roller’s surreal world, a set of “shoes” is actually a pair of bananas with bright white shoelaces, Christmas candle is actually baby carrot and a car tire into a visually deceiving birthday cake. No matter what the mash-up, each piece takes on a futuristic quality that is both surreal and oddly realistic in its execution. Although his work looks like they were digitally retouched, the talented artist actually took the time to build each work of art by hand. Hence, all of the unusual constructions exist in real life.
