I guess nobody ever told artist Kevin Van Aelst not to play with his food. His brand of art, a blend of sculpture and painting, uses food as a medium, creating order and patterns where disorder would be expected. 


His specialty is creating fingerprints out of various food items. Whether it is a commentary on the foodie movement (food as identity, identity as food), or not, the art is visually stunning. A personal favorite is the periodic table made out of gummy bears. Hard to make chemistry more accessible than that.
