Arty Party: Kevin Van Aelst.

The Heart, 2009

Common Clouds, 2007

Periodic Table of the Elements, 2005

"My color photographs consist of common artifacts and scenes from everyday life, which have been rearranged, assembled, and constructed into various forms, patterns, and illustrations. The images aim to examine the distance between the ‘big picture’ and the ‘little things’ in life—the banalities of our daily lives, and the sublime notions of identity and existence. This work is about creating order where we expect to find randomness, and also hints that the minutiae all around us is capable of communicating much larger ideas."

I just adore the way Kevin Van Aeslt uses food and every day objects in unique ways to create an entirely new object or idea.
