Latest issue of Clase Premier magazine, a monthly publication distributed to first-class passengers of Aeroméxico airline, has featured this optical illusion portrait made entirely out of food, plates and dining utensils.
The setup was made by mexican art studio Golpeavisa, featuring a mind-blowing portrait of danish chef Rene Redzepi, who is a renowned noma restaurant owner.
Similar attempts have been made before. Portraits were done out of debris, Bose elements, garbage and even Harley Davidson bike parts. And while I’m sure we have already featured examples made entirely out of food, I cant seem to find particular illusion I could reference here. Care to help me?
Seems that Golpeavisa has taken the concept of “playing with food” to a whole new level! Utilizing an arrangement technique referred to as flotsam and jetsam, they carefully arranged wine glasses, wine bottles, dining utensils and a diverse selection of food to develop an accurate reproduction of chef’s face. The illusion works best when portrait is seen from a distance, and can only be seen from certain angle. Those of you using our “Optical Illusion of The Day” widgets and gadgets have probably seen the illusion in its full glare even before visiting this site.
