The Cool Stuff for this week is art we find in food. In this creation is a collection of food cubes presented by Lernet & Sander. It is one way to look at food in a totally new light, at least for me.
The foods we eat come in all shapes and sizes, but something beautiful happens if you cut it all down to size — literally. Design studio Lernert & Sander did just that to make the remarkable piece of art above, which was commissioned by Dutch newspaper De Volkskrant last year for a feature on the nation’s eating habits.
I have seen food presented in many artistic ways, but not like.
The very act of cutting each food from corn and salmon to cauliflower and kiwi into 2.5 centimeter cubes shows just how unique nature can be. By attempting to force nature to conform, the differences between each fruit, vegetable, and slab of meat becomes even more apparent (and beautiful).
