Nutritionists and dietitians recommend keeping a food diary to track what you eat to help you lose weight. I wonder if Riki Takaoka's artistic food diary has similarly raised his awareness of his own consumption.
Implications - The relationship between food and art is a mutual one; food inspires the work of many artists, but the presentation of food itself is also an artform to many consumers. With the rise of healthier lifestyles, food journals have become a popular means of monitoring eating habits. Many artists use illustration, painting and even sculpting to do this, which marries functionality and art.
