In Henry Hargreaves’s body of work “No Seconds,” he photographs the final meals requested by death row inmates which are paired with text describing the requested meal, the name of the criminal, and the crime he/she committed. Photographed in the style of a visual survey, each image appeals to a person’s desire to understand the inner workings of their criminal minds.

“I strive to create images that elegantly articulate the totality of existence, focusing heavily on the broad themes of life and death, with further emphasis placed on ideas of fragility, impermanence and carnality” say Boston-based photographer, Tara Sellios of her large format camera work. Born in 1987, the young photographer graduated from the Art Institute of Boston and has since been making a name for herself locally and nationally.

This amazing informational video illustrates the differences between porn sex and real sex by using food as an analogy. Using zucchinis, cilantro, nutella, hot dogs, various sliced fruits and a lightly-bondaged chicken, this video makes use of everyday accoutrements to demonstrate the difference between pornland and our own bedrooms. The result is a hilariously intelligent bit of sex-education, we'd recommend it to (almost) all age groups, especially if your own midnight romps aren't living up to the glamour of the waxed-up video world. Also, just listen to her say "hot load" a few times.

We are always looking for fun stuff to post on the site, to explore the random possibilites of art. Well, we have seen really amazing things done with food art in the past, but sometimes if you have some fruit, bread, and some cheese, you can be like Norwegian photographer Ida Skivenes and take that to a whole new level by making classic painting and pop-culture icons with your breakfast snack. Magritte with apples? Nice.

We remember playing with our cheap white bread when we were a kid, smashing and rolling it into balls, so we weren't surprised so much as impressed by Polish artist Milena Korolczuk's food sculptures. She has taken playing with her food to a whole new level, sculpting tiny heads of historic figures from Plato and Lenin to pop artists like Andy Warhol and rappers like Jay-Z.

Whenever you are playing with your food, think of Brock Davis and his Joy Division with pasta image. That will set the bar with what you can do with no props while at your grandparents house. We are getting a kick out of all Brocks' work, and in the past we loved his cauliflower explosion series a while back.

Sometimes the idea of sticking a another boring cube into our coffee gets us down. Luckily, a designer by the name of Snow Violet created these brilliant skull and cross bones cubes so we can make our morning routine of staring into our coffee cup a bit more sinister... (if we can figure out where to get some)

Maybe this is because we are super excited about the new Arrested Development season, but anything with a banana right now is on our radar. Cleon Daniel has created this hybrid of pool and miniature golf with the Banana Pool Table, complete with yellow felt and 4 holes instead of 6. We say there is a new beer pongish game to be had here....
