Modern Art Desserts: From Mondrian Cake to Matisse Parfait

image

As a lover of modern art, Mondrian-inspired creative projects, and unusual cookbooks, I was instantly enamored with Modern Art Desserts: Recipes for Cakes, Cookies, Confections, and Frozen Treats Based on Iconic Works of Art (public library) by Caitlin Freeman, pastry chef at the Blue Bottle café at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, which she roams for inspiration, then translates the artwork into edible masterpieces. From Matisse parfait to Mondrian cake to Frida wedding cookies to Fuller hot chocolate, the recipes hit the spot for art-lovers and foodies alike, adding an extra layer of whimsical delight to the art of dessert.

Modern Art Desserts is, in both the punniest and least punny way possible, an absolute treat.

This would make for exceptional expressive therapy!

Artist Heather Hansen makes magnificent large-scale drawings using her body’s full range of motion. Mesmerizing, indeed, but not new – artist Tony Orrico, “the human spirograph,” gave the technique notoriety in 2011. 

But then again, lest we forget, all art builds on what came before.

Fascinating! See what your vocal cords (or larynx) look like when you’re speaking or making sounds. Your larynx is where pitch (musical tones) and volume are controlled. You can also make it louder or more quiet depending on how much air is being pushed out through your lungs!

This is footage from a video laryngoscopy

From the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics (with permission). This is what happens when I say “eee” with a camera down my throat… Note also that the trachea is visible when I breathe. Cool huh? Actual size: roughly that of a quarter.
