Crooked Brains

Sometimes I look at Crooked Brains, a website that seems to consist mainly of pictures somebody collected by doing Google Images searches.  I first found it while doing a Google Images search to collect pictures for this site.  So here are a few of that person’s finds.  The captions are mine.

A post called “Art With Food” features edible sculptures by J Zhang.  I can’t copy these pictures here because of copyright, but they are well worth a look.  I especially recommended his parrots made of carrots.

    The egg pram is cute.

    I guess I don’t “get” the strawberry and the melon.

    I like the combination of the little dog’s snarl plus the paw over the leg.

    Why is that guy’s tongue that far out? ewww

    “Cooties at work”- perfect!

    I should probably scour the web looking for better shots of the strawberry and the melon and more information about them. They look like replicas of 18th century French miniature sculptural groups. I don’t know much about that genre, so I’d need text identifying which works they are copying. The sheer fact that that was accomplished on a strawberry and a melon is rather amazing.

    I suspect photo manipulation . .

    I remember a while ago somebody copied the entire Bible on a grain of rice.

    Could be photo manipulation, or it could be real- as you say, people do things like copying the Bible on a grain of rice. If you can do that, why not carve a strawberry into a replica of some sculptural group?

    I suspect the strawberry and melon because the sculpture is so intricate, and the fruit is so mushy and fast-rotting. The rice is hard and relatively stable.

    Yes, it would be necessary to work extremely fast, or in very low temperatures, to achieve that form.
