Food as Art

January 30, 2008 at 7:14 am 2 comments

We have all heard it before . . . a meal appearance is just as important as its taste. There is something about well designed food that just tastes better. The people of food-designing have a interesting concept of engaging food and social activity. The approach to food should always involve both the cooking and preparation of it. Foods can easily take on ergonomic, functional, communicative, and interactive properties.

    I am not sure about the peas, but the other photos give one pause. I think that with some thought you could make some foods more appealing to kids as well as adults.

    @frankschulteladbeck: Yeah, I think there is a lot of possibililty with food. It’s one thing to have a nice presentation, but it’s another to use it as a medium to convey some sort of idea. And yeah, I would be compelled to eat some foods I don’t care for if they were more fun to eat.
