Foodscapes: Complex Landscapes Constructed Entirely from Food
September 2nd, 2013
Think you have an infatuation with food? Well, as always, you’ve been one-upped. Carl Warner, artist and designer, is more of a foodie than you will ever be. He has used his computer graphics skills in combination with his physical “playing-with-food” abilities in order to construct some of the most marvelous landscapes that this planet has ever seen: foodscapes. They make me want to close my eyes and dance with the night* for the rest of eternity, except for when I have to stop and go get more Cheetos.

Above, you can see the real life Candyland. No, not the electronic duo, and not the wonderfully-crafted board game. This is the real deal, folks. There’s even a real candy-girl sitting at the bottom of that well and waiting to crawl up at you in a spider-like fashion! (Movies… what have you done to me?)

Just think about how long it took for this man to create each of those little corn blocks, and then be amazed. Also, think about how long it is going to take that no-legged mushroom to pull his little cart all the way along the Great Wall of China! That’s true dedication – that’s all-natural brawn and determination.
If you would like to see more food landscapes, just head on over to Carl Warner’s website. Otherwise, if you’re still hungry, you can always check out the iTray flying food tray and this delectable squid masterpiece.
