KFC – Double Down

sandwich, worldwide

Another milestone to transform people into  zombies.

“Otherwise, what you have is a wad of random stuff. A recent “low carb” trend reminiscent of the Atkins Diet, however, seems to have people straying from that tried-and-true formula in favor of what many might call “odd” results.

The Kentucky Fried Chicken sandwich, referred to lovingly as the “Double Down,” has, as of Monday, been made available nationwide. KFC began test marketing its new sandwich last April in both Rhode Island and Nebraska.” read more

Enoc Armengol – Panpaati

object, product-design

Panpaati. Every piece forms a living, organic, natural structure, which suffers the alterations on having interacted with the environment, humans, animals…This is food! It creates a vital cycle, which it’s born, lives, and dies without leaving rest.

100% alive matter. 100% biodegradable.

The work is formed by a set of common furniture, composed by two chairs and one table, these turn automatically into the core of a synergy of shared actions, both internal and external, that modify the initial form constantly.

Somehow this installation can be a clear reflect from the actual society and production process. Fast, and the short-time life of the current, almost ephemeral furniture. Nevertheless, these pieces can also be eaten becoming part of the living process.

BBB Johannes Deimling – What’s in my head (Was in meinem Kopf ist)

k-salon, D-Berlin 2009
Duration 32 minutes

“Description of action Similar like the structure of a collage I combine different small actions into one image: Throwing stepp by step red powder on my barefooted feets; putting wooden wings into a roll; slapping with my hands in my face; building up a tree from cardboard, dripping wax from candles (Y,O,U) on my breast, sticking papers in the shape of a “B” on the cardboard branches; hanging up a wooden puppet on the tree; creating a nest and putting small toy-tanks into it; tying a bread on my face, sticking forks into the breadhead, creaming my breadface, throwing red powder on it; spilling noodles letters over the audience; exploding the roll with the wooden wings. ”  More images from the artist’s website

Adam Sheldon – Crucifixion

Made for Anglican Church of St Peter
Great Limber – 2010 Jan.
burned toaster bread

Using his toaster, the artist burned every piece of bread before drying them out and flattening them so they were ready to be positioned in a giant frame. He then spent hours scraping the toast with a knife to create the lighter parts of the image, such as Christ’s halo, and a blow torch to create darker patches. (read more here)
