Wearable Food – Yeonju Sung

Daily food becoming outstanding outfits. That’s what Yeonju Sung a south korean artist did.

She used ordinary food – as bananas, mushrooms, tomatoes, eggplants, bread, eggs, and even bubble gum – to develop not so ordinary costumes, as you can see below.

From the artists website: ” This series of her work forces viewers to defy the actual meaning, the functionalities, and the aspects of what clothing signifies in our lives. The essence of clothing and food has been reinterpreted. Each element does not fulfill its own role and yet, each suggests an unconventional and even contradicting role – unwearable clothing that is made out of the materials that do not last.”

  1. Woooooow. Just amazing. What is that white one with the holes made of?

    My grandparents had these African artworks on their wall that were made of dried banana peels chopped up and put together like a puzzle. They were traditional family scenes. Always though is was a really cool idea.
