Serrah Russell’s Muted Body As Landscape Photographs

Serrah Russell lives and works in Seattle, WA. Using instant film her work often presents the body as an ominous muted landscape. Her close-up snap shots take on the form of hazy abstractions. Her work has been described as a way to “illuminate the permanent effect that actions trace upon their environment. Her works are a tangible remnant of an abstracted and often autobiographical narrative of immutable occurrences that move forward in a flux of nature, culture and time.”

Edible Art Supplies: Design Firm Nendo Creates Chocolate Paint Tubes and Pencils

Nendo - Chocolate Art Supplies Nendo - Chocolate Art Supplies Nendo - Chocolate Art Supplies

If you have a huge sweet tooth like I do, then the chocolate art supplies by design firm Nendo are probably whetting your appetite. These tubes of paint and pencils are completely edible, and the paint tubes are full of different sweet fillings. You can sharpen the “pencils” and use the shavings to enhance other desserts.

Nendo originally created the chocolate pencils in 2007 for patissier Tsujiguchi Hironobu. Art and cooking (especially the art of plating food) go hand in hand, and the designers considered this with their initial idea. They write:

We wanted our plates to show off the beauty of meals and desserts like a painting on a canvas. Based on this idea, our “chocolate pencils” come in a number of cocoa blends that vary in intensity, and chocophiles can use the special “pencil sharpener” that comes with our plate to grate chocolate onto their dessert. Pencil filings are usually the unwanted remains of sharpening a pencil, but in this case, they’re the star!

The paint tubes have an edible label that tell you what flavored syrup to expect. They range from green tea to honey to caramel. Nendo describes their new creation as “…design that combines the childhood excitement of opening a new box of paints and the thrill of opening a box of chocolates you’ve been given unexpectedly.” What a perfect gift for someone who is both a sweets and artist. Yum! (Via This Is Colossal and Yatzer)

His compositions remain static until an area is covered in the formed plastic, the work then resembles flowing color fields. Like glimpses into another dimension his sculptures ebb and flow as colors swirl around the viewer.
