Carl Warner’s Whimsical Food Landscapes

The London skyline--Riverbank walls: panini; lamppost: mackerel, asparagus, onion, vanilla pods; London Eye: green beans; courgette, leek, lemon, rhubarb supports; The Dome: green melon.

 

Putting the art back into Earth Studies, artists like Carl Warner draw on real landscapes to create their imaginary ones.  Having students create their own 2D or 3D landscape could be a very interesting project.

Google Earth as Geospatial Surreal Art

"[Google Earth's] mostly automated system sometimes produces unexpected and wonderful artifacts. The bridges in this video are glitches that occur when the 2d satellite imagery and 3d terrain don’t line up quite right, or structures such as bridges are projected down onto the terrain below, creating fabulous and unintentional distortions. These images are like funhouse mirrors – strange illusions and reflections of the real." -Clement Valla

11 of the Most Colorful Cities in the World

11 of the Most Colorful Cities in the World | SocialMediaDesign | Scoop.it

What are the cultural aesthetics of architecture within any particular cultural group?  What do these landscapes say about the people and society that created them?  Do you think there would be economic benefits for Guanajuato's (Mexico) urban layout?  Why is Willemstad more iconically Dutch than most places in the Netherlands?

Alyssa Dorr's curator insight, December 15, 2014 10:46 PM

This article tells us the eleven most colorful cities in the world. Although they give us eleven options, everyone knows that the first one is going to be the best one. Number one, the picture that is shown above, is located in Guanajuato City, Mexico. As you can tell from the photo, all of the buildings are different colors. The city was founded in 1554 next to one of the richest mining areas of Mexico. In the 16th century, there was a mining boom, thus led them to the construction of this colorful, beautiful city. Alleyways are spread out in every direction surround by a breathtaking mountain view. This was the only spot that Mexico took on the top eleven scale. The Netherlands took the number two spot along with the number eight spot. First with Willemstad and second with Utrecht. India was another country that took two spots on our countdown. The last two spots were claimed by Jaipur and Jodhpur. Places that were on here that I was surprised about included places like Italy and Sweden. The pictures do not do it justice. The places looked magnificent and I only hope and hope to see them up close and personal one day.

Most important element for landscape photography is sunlight. The sunrise and late evening scenes create fantasy and attraction, time is most important in landscape photography.
