German artist Stefanie Herr’s Styrofoam food creations look so realistic you may want to pop one in the microwave. Using digital photography prints and several layers of matboard, Herr was able to create these tantalizing trays. The map-inspired faux food creations take on a topographic form that look realistic from the top, but mountainous from the side.
The bizarre creations are similar in nature to the other work that Herr does, which has primarily been topographical maps of varying regions so branching out to food was a fresh, yet obscure idea. The extensive collection includes fruits, veggies, prepared meals as well as raw seafood and meats that might have you thinking you’ve gone to the market without setting foot outside. You can check out the entire collection among others on her personal site.
