The work of Scott Young is a playful turn on food photography. His fruits and vegetables seem not so much delicious as rebellious. Young photographs various produce covered with studs usually found on clothing. He mixes the language of punk rock fashion with that of food photography to in a way that each undermines the other. The simple idea is strangely amusing. The disparate context of each crash together to create a new one that seems to somehow make sense in its own way.
These aren’t your typical vinyl records. Actually, they’re not vinyl at all. Amanda Ghassaei seems to have perfectly situated herself between being a scientist and artist. This project illustrates that well. For it Ghassaei uses a laser to burn grooves into a variety of materials such as wood, acrylic, and paper. The grooves are about two times larger than they would be on a regular record. However, these DIY records are still entirely playable. Check out the video after the jump to see her laser-cut records in action.

Everything from the choice of color, the abstraction of the human body, and the strange vintage imagery sets it aside from work that you see on most gallery walls!
