Jon Feinstein Gets Up Close And Personal With Fast Food

26 Grams, 2010 FeinsteinPhotography9 14 Grams, 2008

Food art. It’s everywhere. Yesterday I posted Emily Blincoe’s mouthwatering candy arrangements and today I’m posting these, well, not-so-mouthwatering photographs of fast food. Jon Feinstein’s Fast Food series is meant to expose the viewer to the repulsive aesthetics of the processed and chemicalized food marketed to us with an opposite aesthetic. Feinstein creates these images by taking still-warm fast food and placing them on a scanner, creating a stark black background and giving rise to a bit of condensation from some of the food. Each photograph is named for the amount of fat grams in each food, giving the series a scientific method of organizing and labeling them. After years of creating these images, Feinstein still craves fast food every now and again, a paradox that is not uncommon among his viewers.“I remember at the opening many gallery-goers responding that while their initial reaction was to be repulsed, something about the images also made them hungry.” (via)

Dawn Tan’s Epic Munchies

Looking at Dawn Tan’s sculptures makes me hungry. The young Melbourne based artist is interested in how packaged food is taking over natural, organic food and how traditional made-from-scratch meals are becoming replaced by frozen/fast food. Dawn also has a fun series of performance based photography work that you can also check out after the jump.

Artwork Of The Day: Dale Edwin Murray’s Fast Food

I love these minimal fast food prints by illustrator Dale Edwin Murray. His minimal grid based examination of fast food makes me want to buy a print and a super sized order of fries all at once!
