Beneath These Masks Is An Artist Conflicted By Junk Food
August 14, 2014
British photographer James Ostrer purchased about $8,000 worth of junk food over the past two years — enough to fill up six or seven cars.
But all those Mars bars, strawberry shoelaces, donuts and cheese puffs weren’t meant for consumption. Instead, Ostrer caked them on himself and others (with the help of cream cheese “plaster”) to create a series of human sculptures. Photos he took of his creepy-cool creations on candy-colored backgrounds are on display in London.
The exhibit is called “Wotsit all about” (Wotsits are the British version of Cheetos)
