It's always a good idea to play with your food, and artists Henry Hargreaves and Caitlin Levin proved that point even further with their series Food Maps. Inspired by their love of travel, Hargreaves and Levin created worldly maps out of each country's native foods. The artists explain:
These maps are a playful representation of our interpretation of food from around the world, painstakingly created with real unadulterated food. This project speaks to the universality of how food unites people, brings us together and starts conversation -- just as we hope these beautiful maps will do too.
Playful and beautiful, they certainly are. Can you guess what's making up the US shape? Corn, of course! Italy is created from all-things tomato, while India features vibrant spices. France is a delicious bread and cheese combination, and South America is made up of various citrus fruits. See more of these fascinating maps below.
