For the past few years Carl Kleiner has been taking food and transforming it into works of art. You may remember the photos he did for IKEA’s Homemade Is Best cookbook, or perhaps The Art of Cooking videos he also made for IKEA? So when I started putting together ideas for posts this week I knew I had to check back in with Carl’s work to see if he’d done anything new. Sure enough he had.
The images and video above are an Homage To Calder, a playful spin on Calder’s mobiles, only this time with foods. Carl teamed up with his wife Evelina for this project, and together I think the’ve created such a playful take on what Calder was doing. Who says you can’t play with your food?
