What to do with limp vegetables and autumn leaves

September 11, 2015

 

Sarah Illenberger is a Berlin-based artist who merges her significant talent in photography, graphic design and art to produce tantalising artworks...some of which are good enough to eat.

Her sense of humour is evident through her use of everyday objects to create witty and unexpected visual images, although in my household brussels sprouts are certainly not a regular occurrence, as they are reserved exclusively for truth and dare occasions.

While holidaying in Porto, Portugal a walk through the botanical gardens yielded a collection of leaves that inspired Sarah's Wonderplants series. With stickers and tape she found in the local stationery shop, she built a portfolio of neon dotted and striped creations.

Her mission was to solely use resources at hand and the effect is simple and vibrant - a psychedelic twist on nature.

If your family detests eggplant, then perhaps they'll develop an affinity if you sculpt them into delectable penguins before baking them. Her playful artistry has scored Sarah many international contracts in conceptual design.

 

You've heard it here before but we're suckers for feathers at WHT so these shuttlecocks beat brussel sprouts any day. Who wants to eat their greens let alone wear them?
