The unfortunately named food blog Eat Me Daily has a great profile on artist Kevin Van Aelst, who turns food photos into high- (or at least medium-) brow art. If you’ve never seen cellular mitosis as depicted by Krispy Kreme doughnuts, now’s your chance. Equally goofy and wonderful: a finger print rendered in mustard, a yin-yang Oreo, and a periodic table of elements executed with gummi bears.
In this image, “Cantor Set,” Van Aelst uses (no doubt painstakingly) manipulated egg yolk to illustrate a mathematical concept that, trust us, is best left unexplained.
