Artist Hong Yi Plays with her Food for 30 Days

Artist Hong Yi Plays with her Food for 30 Days
For almost every day last month Malaysian artist/architect Hong Yi (who often goes by the nickname Red) created a fun illustration made with common (and occasionally not so common) food. Her parameters were simple: the image had to be comprised entirely of food and the only backdrop could be a white plate. With that in mind Yi set out to create landscapes, animals, homages to pop culture, and even a multi-frame telling of the three little pigs. The project, which still appears to be ongoing, has been documented heavily around the web, but if you haven’t seen it all head over to her Facebook and read an interview on designboom.

List of colors The following is a list of colors. A number of the color swatches below are taken from domain-specific naming schemes such as X11 or HTML4. RGB values are given for each swatch because such standards are defined in terms of the sRGB color space. It is not possible to accurately convert many of these swatches to CMYK values because of the differing gamuts of the two spaces, but the color management systems built into operating systems and image editing software attempt such conversions as accurately as possible. The HSV (hue, saturation, value) color space values, also known as HSB (hue, saturation, brightness), and the hex triplets (for HTML web colors) are also given in the following table. Colors in alphabetical order A-F[edit] For the continuation of the list of colors, please go to List of colors: G-M#Colors. Colors by shade[edit] White[edit] Gray/Grey[edit] Achromatic grays are colors between black and white with no hue. Pink[edit] Red[edit] Main articles: Red and Variations of red Sources

The Geometric Food Art of Sakir Gökçebag And I have trouble cutting a sandwich on a perfect diagonal for my son. From watermelons to green beans and apples to pomegranates, Turkish photographer Sakir Gökçebag slices common fruits and veggies to create striking geometric arrangements.

Meeting God You were on your way home when you died. It was a car accident. Nothing particularly remarkable, but fatal nonetheless. You left behind a wife and two children. It was a painless death. And that's when you met me. "What... what happened?" "You died," I said, matter-of-factly. "There was a... a truck and it was skidding..." "Yup." "I... "Yup. You looked around. "More or less," I said. "Are you god?" "Yup." "My kids... my wife," you said. "What about them?" "Will they be alright?" "That's what I like to see," I said. You looked at me with fascination. "Don't worry," I said. "Oh," you said. "Neither," I said. "Ah," you said. "All the religions are right in their own way," I said. You followed along as we strolled in the void. "Nowhere in particular," I said. "So what's the point, then?" "Not so!" I stopped walking and took you by the shoulders. "You've been a human for the last 34 years, so you haven't stretched out yet and felt the rest of your immense consciousness. "Oh, lots. "Wait, what?"
