A Colorful Winter is a new series of works by photographer Florent Tanet currently on display at Le Bon Marché in Paris through February 16th. The clever arrangements of common fruits and vegetables against pastel backdrops play with color, scale, and shape creating whimsical still lifes meant to act as a reprieve from a dreary winter. If you liked this also check out the work of Sarah Illenberger or Sakir Gökçebag. Also don’t miss Carl and Evelina’s Homage to Calder. You can see much more Tanet’s work on his website.

The Energy Generated from A Single Orange: A Citric Acid Battery by Caleb Charland

November 15, 2012

Christopher Jobson

This orange battery was built by photographer Caleb Charland (previously) as part of his ongoing alternative energy photographs using fruit, vegetables, and other objects to create light for his long-exposure photographs. The electricity powering the lightbulb inside the orange is generated through a chemical reaction between citric acid and the zinc nails inserted into each wedge. I think this is by far the most lovely piece he’s done in the series, but before you start work on a bunch of orange lights to keep on the nightstand, the light generated was so dim this particular photograph required a 14 hour exposure.

Sugar Murals and Cake Icing Graffiti by Shelley Miller

October 31, 2012

Christopher Jobson

Using materials that for centuries have been reserved as tasty decoration the finest cakes and pastries, Montreal-based artist Shelley Miller attacks brick walls and deteriorating urban surfaces with cake icing to create ornate scrolls and decorative motifs. While the medium itself is purely culinary, her illustrations and patterns borrow heavily from calligraphy and decorative arabesque scrolls seen in ancient temples and mosques. Another added dimension is its impermanence as the works crack, drip, and melt off the wall, potentially disappearing in just a few days.

Most recently Miller presented an interactive piece at Nuit Blanche in Montreal called Throw-Up, and you can follow updates via blog—check out that book sculpture! (via collabcubed)

And I have trouble cutting a sandwich on a perfect diagonal for my son. From watermelons to green beans and apples to pomegranates, Turkish photographer Sakir Gökçebag slices common fruits and veggies to create striking geometric arrangements. To clarify: the photos you see here haven’t been digitally manipulated but are instead the result of meticulously precise cutting worthy of a surgeon. If you want to see more I strongly urge you to check out the installations and photography projects on his website. (via designboom)

Andy Ellison works at the BU medical school in Boston where he frequently works with a research-only MRI scanner. Over the past few months he’s been sharing some fantastic animated gifs of his calibration and quality control scans using assorted fruits, vegetables and other plants. As you can see the results are absolutely mesmerizing and I urge you to check out his blog, Inside Insides, for many more scans and hi-res images.
