03/14/2014: Food maps
Food stylist Caitlin Levin and photographer Henry Hargreaves collaborated to make these inventive maps, built from the region’s most famous foods. Italy is rendered in tomatoes, the entire continent of South America is transformed into citrus fruits and the United States (below) receives the corn treatment. The inventiveness of the various types of corn products used to assemble the U.S. map is the key to its success (it appears, for example, that Washington and New York state are made from crumbled-up Doritos). The playfulness key to the project’s success, but the expert execution takes it into another category. Check out more maps here. Via Design Boom.
