The Pasta Monster (And Other Strange Food Art)


"QUANTUM SHOT" #562
Link - by Avi Abrams



Don't stare at your food, or it will stare back at you

In Strange Food Special and Creative Food Manipulation you've seen many weird (and tasty?) results of artists playing with food, mostly in a sculptural way (creative cooking will require its own page, I'm sure)


Nike Air Max 90 Burger, by Olle Hemmendorff)

We'll start with a cabbage bra, by Edith Zimmerman, and her "Alien Autopsy" piece:

Playing with food packaging: Coke bottle scorpion (even using the cap ring) -

Here is another great set of "playing with food", by Vanessa Dualib from Brazil.

Fast food! Check out the side-view mirror detail... on the right is the "potatosaurus" -

Speaking of vegetable transportation, here is a "Radish-Bus", made by Saxton Freymann and Joost Elffers (buy their book here):

We featured creative Bento Boxes before, but here is an artist that needs to be mentioned, her set is simply fantastic:



Bento on the right apparently won't load:

Welcome our new carrot overlords!

Sometimes you don't need art to make creations of Mother Nature any weirder. Witness the Long Javelot Carrot found in the Tokyo supermarket:


(image via)

Sure, it looks grand, but it's not the longest - the longest carrot on record is 19 feet 2 inches:

This series, commissioned by Greenpeace, made carrots (and green peas) cool again; maybe even kids would eat their vegetables now - info:

You might have seen this watermelon carving by one Chinese company before, but it's nothing short of amazing, so we are going to show it here:



(original unknown)

The other popular way to play with a watermelon, is to reshape it (by patiently growing it in a custom box) - on the other hand, this could be just a Worth1000 manipulation, what do you think -


(original unknown)

A new entry in the epic egg drama (an on-going project by Nocturnal Moth from Norway, see more here)

Another entry in our collection of weird food: The Meatball Bubblegum, yum! - and The Bubblegum Wienies, order them here:

Also check out these PES skulls (created by EatPes) -

Some food Victorian posters are creepy... On the right is the Russian "Night-time Pancakes" 1900s art (see more great Pre-Soviet advertising posters here). It has somewhat haunted feel to it:



Weirdest Cooking Appliances and Cutlery

The hottest food requires the hottest BBQ:



Not a morning person? This will help to prepare a gun-shaped omelet to ease you into the day:



Freddy Kruger's Finger Forks... and Pacman oven mitts, seen here:


(images via)

More surreal food manipulation that might or might not make you hungry

The Pasta Monster... and the herring fish stockings...


(images via)

Suicidal and adventurous food:

Some drinks are not safe either.... this light bulb image is sort of disturbing:

Meat grinder from somebody's nightmare (marriage gone bad):


(image credit: Ingvear)

"In 2006 artists Nicolas Lampert and Micaela O’Herlihy created a gigantic Attention Chicken! which they toured around Milwaukee generating mixed reactions." - more info




(original unknown)

Make it!... and eat it:


(original unknown)

We started with a hamburger (sort of) and we're going to finish with one:

The face-shaped watermelon is real. I've seen them in markets in Asia, though their prices are exorbitant.

Watermelon is very real, and very pricey.

My favourite is the suicidal pig and the night-time pancakes.
