Artists Cut 98 Different Raw Foods Into Perfect Cubes

May 14, 2015

These are the 98 different raw foods that Dutch artists Lernert and Saunder cut into perfect 2.5cm cubes for a food-themed newspaper photoshoot. There's something really visually appetizing about the shot. Can you name all the foods? I could only identify like five, but almost everything I eat comes in the form of a microwavable meal. You know how much of my recommended daily allowance of sodium I get? Almost 3,000%. "That isn't healthy." Nothing about this nightmare I call life is healthy. You know what the guy who swallows swords and gets shot out of the cannon at the circus told me? 'How are you still alive?' I told him the only thing that makes any sense: I'm an immortal warlock.

Keep going for closeups of them all, then join a fad diet with me where we only eat things that are a certain shape.

Thanks to Shannon LR, who only eats food that comes in spheres and never travels anywhere without a melon baller.

  • The Magnificent Newtboy

    I really want a high definition poster print of this to hang in my kitchen.

  • Jamie Askin

    98 different raw foods... and 6 - 7 of them are fish. How original...

  • The knife used to do this. I wants it.

  • EmperorXenol

    You may as well start putting links to petapixel where 90% of this stuff seems to appear first...

    In the days where everything is supposed to be shared....nothing should be shared? That's the way this website thingy works, Emperor.

  • Kane Harrison

    Isometric, so why aren't the cubes at the back smaller than the cubes at the front?
    It's like a fucked up Q-Bert.

  • Jason Rogers

    i wondered the same thing. why is the perspective not right? It's like they shot them each individually and then photoshopped them into this grid (probably the case)

  • Harold Garrett

    They probably >had< to do it that way, because by the time he could get all of them cut perfectly, half of them would rot.

  • Tyguy

    I just want to start eating each one now

  • MustacheHam

    It looks like a square meal.

  • Tyguy

    A cubed meal, maybe

  • Wiley

    I'm sure anyone who's played Minecraft could easily find appeal in this work.
    (not to say that it's a requirement by any means, just a simple connection)

  • JJtoob

    I thought the same thing.

  • disqus_k2QxOV9H7Z

    I see some romanesco broccoli!

  • Meh

    Now that's presentation!
