A universe of food

A universe of food

The Universe has always raised intriguing questions and many scientists have tried to answer them. Nevertheless, artists from all over the world have put their mind and creativity up to an apparently impossible task; giving this huge question mark a point.

Photographer Navid Baraty, narrator of beautiful unusual stories told by his captures, has decided to offer the world a different view of how “simple” the creation of the Universe was, using only contents of his kitchen cupboard. The artist has cooked up entire galaxies, shots from all around the Space, using usual, mundane ingredients. His “models” were actually kitchen treats, found in everybody’s home. From cinnamon floury super clusters to coconut planets and sugary stars, the photographer gave the world a piece of his unordinary perspective of it all.

Baraty has said that the “fictional space scenes” have as inspiration resource Nasa and Hubble space telescope images. Baraty mixed together some olive and sesame oils. Adding water, cumin, cinnamon and flour, he got one of the most popular photographs; a distant galaxy view. By combining water and food coloring in a transparent glass and scanning its bottom, Navid Baraty made a shot of planet, only adding some salt, cinnamon and baking powder for the stars surrounding it.

A tasty nebula was also one of his most loved shots. For that, he put together some olive oil, baby powder, salt and chalk. Adored by both scientists and gourmands, Navid’s photographs are soon to be displayed at an art gallery, introduced by a show signed by him.
