Each model’s clothing in the series was made entirely of real food and depicts a meal that the person was craving. This project was shot in January of 2009 (pre Lady Gaga). 15 designers, led by Ami Goodheart of SOTO Productions, were involved and each garment took hours to cook, create and assemble. The artichoke gown was designed by Daniel Feld and Wesley Nault of Project Runway fame. It took over 6 hours to finish (the model stood the entire time while they attached each, individual leaf).

Alain Delorme was born in 1979. He graduated from Gobelins in Paris with a degree in Photography. He also has a Master of Science and Technology in Photography from the University of Paris VIII. In this series, ‘Totems’, the composites are recreated on the basis of 6,000 images taken in Shanghai during two art residencies. The loads are exaggerated to emphasize the ‘totems’, which are highly symbolic of the ‘Made in China’ consumer culture. Delorme is represented by Galerie Magda Danysz in Paris. (previously-blogged)

‘ A series of smashed, mangled, shot up and melted apple products are the subject of a recent photography project by a San Francisco-area graphic designer who said he’s trying to make people think about their relationship with these universally beloved gadgets. Michael Tompert said he had spent the last several months purchasing the newest in Apple consumer technology and then creatively destroying the pricey toys. The results, which he photographed, briefly went on display at a gallery exhibition that ran over the weekend at the small live worms gallery in San Francisco. Tompert said the idea for the project came to him after he gave each of his two sons an ipod touch for christmas. He said the two boys fought over one of the devices, which had a certain game on it. fed up with the quarrel, Tompert said he grabbed one of the ipods and smashed it on the ground. ‘ (via Designboom)
