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

      Strange Food Special
      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
      of "playing with food", by Vanessa Dualib from Brazil.
Fast food! Check out the side-view mirror detail... on the right is the "potatosaurus" - (images credit: Vanessa Dualib) (original unknown) Speaking of vegetable transportation, here is a "Radish-Bus", made by Saxton Freymann and Joost Elffers (buy their book here): (images credit: Saxton Freymann and Joost Elffers) 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: (images credit: Kitsa Sakurako) 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: (images via CarrotMuseum, Larry Krause) This series, commissioned by Greenpeace, made carrots (and green peas) cool again; maybe even kids would eat their vegetables now - info: (images credit: Fubiz) 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) (image credit: nocturnalmoth) Another entry in our collection of weird food: The Meatball Bubblegum, yum! - and The Bubblegum Wienies, order them here: (image via) Also check out these PES skulls (created by EatPes) - (images credit: 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: (image credit: ballatamas) Some drinks are not safe either.... this light bulb image is sort of disturbing: (images via) Meat grinder from somebody's nightmare (marriage gone bad): (image credit: Ingvear) (images via) "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: (image credit: Sarah Illenberger) CONTINUE TO NEXT PART -> Also Read: The Tasty Art of Chocolate and Candy

Very cool, although I was a lil' grossed out by the burger/sneaker combo!

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

Great article. Thanks for the information.

Watermelon is very real, and very pricey.

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