Many fruits are too malleable as a media to be used regularly in art, but that isn't stopping Sarah Illenberger at all, as demonstrated by her collection entitled Heilpflanzen. Soldiering onward, she's actually managed to utilize edible greenery to produce some spectacular recreations of human organs.

The Heilpflanzen series was crafted by Sarah Illenberger for SZ-Magazine and was photographed by Ragnar Schmuck. Using simple vegetation, she's managed to craft such human anatomical parts as the heart, the lungs and even the spinal cord.

I know it's ambitious, but I can't wait to see someone recreate an entire human being out of vegetation. If anyone can do it, Sarah Illenberger can.

Implications - Consumers gravitate towards artwork because it satiates their desire for escapist materials. Escapism provides consumers with euphoric sensations, which they use as a coping mechanism for daily stresses. Corporations may consider releasing a line of stress-combating products as a source of revenue.
