Now this is the kind of art I’m into: food art! Artists Caitlin Levin and Henry Hargreaves have created Food Maps, a series of continents and countries made out of their favourite national foods. On their website, Levin and Hargreaves “These maps show how food has traveled the globe — transforming and becoming a part of the cultural identity of that place.” The US map is particularly wonderful as it features segments of multiple foods based on the states, and Japan must have been quite fiddly to shape.
