Food art

When my sister was in college, she created an art display made of scattered coffee beans. It was positioned in the hallway, between the art practice department and the anthropology department. At least it was, until the anthropology department faculty had a conniption, complaining that they could smell the coffee in their classrooms (oh horrors!). The art department declared that henceforth, food products shall not be used in art displays.

BOO! BOO! to uptight anthropologists!

Food is a natural medium for art - so natural even babies do it. Here are some examples that have landed on my list in the past few weeks:

The Twin Towers, rendeded in McDonald's french fries and ketchup ...

An anatomically correct heart, out of those chalky Conversation Heart candies that no one ever eats ...
