Deep-Fried Gadgets

If you ever wondered what technology looks like after it’s been cooked, Henry Hargreaves has the answer! Fret not, these gadgets aren’t real – just foam copies. Hargreaves has a “restless and curious mind, a fascination with the unusual or quirky and a desire to see how photography can illuminate the world and spark conversation.”

Sentimental Sugar

For her latest clever creation, Brooklyn-based Julia Chiang used Ring Pops to write messages on a wall. As the gallery lights heat the art, the Ring Pops melt, streaking the walls with color and enhancing the installation.

Food Art: The Taste of Fashion, Fulvio Bonavia

“A Matter of Taste” is an art project by the artist and ad photographer Fulvio Bonavia. This project unites two worlds: food and high fashion: both wanted, dreamt and forbidden in the same time. As you can see in the images below, he takes food such as blackberries, cauliflower and kiwis and creates products such as watches and purses. Fulvio Bonavia presents a work of great and rare inspiration, creation and quality. His work has been honored by Communication Arts, PDN, the Italian Art Directors Club, among a lot of others, and Luerzer’s Archive has named Fulvio one of the ‘200 Best Ad Photographers Worldwide’.

“A Matter of Taste” illustrates high end fashion garments and accessories from the world’s most famous designers made from food. The artist puts sources that we take for granted in our daily lives, and successes in making us stop and admire those simple things as works of art. Through the use of great lighting, illustration, transparency and retouching, these pieces have an untouchable style of their own that project a priceless quality and an inner beauty that can be only seen in exceptional pieces from a museum.
