Merry Boxing Day to all you RumbleChat foodies!
If you found that after all the turkey, sprouts, Christmas pud and mince pies, the effort to open your Christmas presents yesterday was just too much, (unless you opened them all before breakfast that is!) then this might be the thing for you! A Brazilian burger chain has just released an advert with their food served in edible wrappers! See the advert here…
It’s hard to get your head around it isn’t it? I find even sugar paper hard to eat!
Take a look at this amazing photography exhibition of tiny plastic people amongst real food environments. It’s adorable, clever and foodie. And we like foodie don’t we RumbleChatters?!
Artist Christopher Boffoli created this world when he realised there has been an age old fascination for the miniature and the gigantic going as far back as Jonathan Swift’s tale of Gulliver’s Travels. He explains that his inspiration came from the fact that when you are a child everything is out of proportion… From tiny, detailed Matchbox cars to enormous, chunky Mars Bars… (which when you get to adulthood you are convinced have become smaller!)
Anyway, enjoy taking a look at this gorgeous exhibition!
This may just be the most random blog posting that RumbleChat have ever made, but it made us laugh all the same! This, um, tasty looking portrait of MJ is a creation by artist Cristiam Ramos. He uses an assortment of sweets, including gummy bears, M&Ms, licorice and peppermints for his artwork.
However, what we find even more impressive is the price that Mr Ramos sells his works for… we’re talking upwards of $18,000!
So are these works of art actually more than just a brightly coloured piece of edible popular culture? Are there intentional connections between the celebrity, mass culture and artificial, processed sweeties? Or are they just pretty cool?! Check out this portrait of Marilyn Monroe to decide…
