Fresh Guacamole: A New Stop Motion Short from PES

March 8, 2012

Christopher Jobson

In his first stop motion short in over a year, animator PES (previously) has just released this brilliant companion piece to his groundbreaking 2008 cooking video Western Spaghetti. I’m happy to report this new clip is every bit as wonderful as his earlier works. PES has an uncanny ability to utilize the most unexpected common objects to represent foods, animals and other things—those dice!! (via junk culture)

Cooking up a Rainbow

January 21, 2012

In case you want to know what I’ve been up to this morning, it’s been watching this brilliant new ad for Lurpak with my son, on repeat, while he runs around the house screaming “MASH MASH MASH”—and I think I’m about to join him. When advertising works, it really works. The spot was produced by Wieden+Kennedy, directed by Dougal Wilson.

Edible Gelatin Typography

January 13, 2012

Christopher Jobson

I’m sure the idea of making letters out of gelatin has been around for quite a while, but this particular attempt by Lucía Rallo and Aranxa Esteve of m-inspira is gorgeously executed. From the choice of colors, to the crafted letterforms and even the photography itself; I’m trying to eat these things through my monitor right now.  Mocoloco reports the duo using standard gelatin and sugar and they are indeed ready to consume.

Harmless Weapons by Kyle Bean

December 13, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Kyle Bean (previously here and here and sure why not even here) has just published some wonderful photos of harmless weapons for an article in CUT Magazine Germany about yarn bombing and guerrilla gardening. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, it seems everything this guy designs turns into pure awesome. No pressure or anything. The photos are by Sam Hofman and you can see more on Kyle’s website.

DIY Modular Gourmet Chocolates

October 12, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Yes, yes, a thousand times yes. Sweet Play is the diploma project of French designer Elsa Lambinet who recently graduated from the ECAL University of Art and Design with a Masters in Advanced Studies in Luxury. I’m not 100% sure what a Masters in Luxury is, but if it means I get to create projects like this, I’m applying for scholarships. The idea behind sweet play is pretty straightforward. A modular design allows for three types of chocolate that can support two added ingredients: black chocolate has a hole to contain fruit, milk chocolate has spaces for nuts, and white chocolate is surfaced to hold liquids, and all three contain a hallowed compartment for inserted flavored wafers, perhaps nougat or carmel. Participants get to mix and match ingredients for hours and hours as they gorge themselves on custom confectionery goodness.

Via email Lambinet says the project remains only a concept as she has yet to find any interesting offers to help realize the project, which is a crying shame. Somebody call somebody. This seems like the perfect thing for Alinea. (thnx, elsa!)
