New Zealand/Brooklyn photographer Henry Hargreaves heard of an experiment in which electronics were cooked and eaten. It didn’t turn out quite as expected. He pondered ways to do the same thing, only better.

I love to work with food in photography, to me there is so much potential in the genre for storytelling by mashing up opposite components and forcing the viewer to look at things differently. With this series I guess there is a comment about consumption and the similarities with the way we are obsessed with the ‘new’ gadget. We get it, are obsessed by it and then discard it. Just like fast food! But at the end of the day, I hope people just get a kick out of seeing some fun pictures!

But don’t try to deep-fry your own electronics! Hargreaves avoided the potential danger of cooking unknown materials by recreating the gadgets with foam core overlaid with photographs of the original items. Food stylist Caitlin Levin made the tempura batter and did the frying. The result is thought-provoking, all right, but also truly fun.

DIY WIRE RING

We love this DIY wire ring.  It’s so simple, yet so chic!  Perfect for everything from a casual to a dressy look.  You can even wear it at your next event.

Don’t wait a minute, let’s get started:

1.  Gather your materials: beading wire, finger sized cylinder, and a wire cutter.

2.  Wrap the wire around your cylinder until you reach the thickness that you like.

3.  Cut the wire to leave room for a final wrap to close the ring.

4.  Tuck your wire through your ring and wrap until the wire ends.

5.  Make sure to weave the end of the wire into the ring so it won’t poke you while wearing.

Repurposed trays and candlestick holders make fabulous accessory and make up storage. I doubt you could thrift these cheaper than the dollar store sells them, but for the same price you could definitely get some unique items with a nice patina to them at the thrift shoppe.
