Today’s post comes from our buddy Dave Ruggeri, Grand Rapids native and devout design enthusiast:
I’ve always found the idea of Food as Art alluring. Using food’s natural aesthetics and a little manipulation, Sarah Illenberger has created some very clever compositions from her ongoing ‘Strange Fruits‘ project. Sarah is a Munich native working out of her Berlin studio since 2007. To sum up her handiwork, Antje Wewer said it best when she stated, “Whatever she creates, it is done with a humorous touch and a great love for detail.”
On another plot hovering above the spectrum of food works, the gelatinous English duo Bompas and Parr are making waves in the world of design. Using a variety of foods and hand-crafted jelly molds, the sheer composition and texture will have you google-searching for more. For a touch of their humor, here’s an interview done by the brilliant Avant/Garde Diaries.
