Think about eating a planet. Imagine going to a restaurant and order, as a starter, a Mars soufflé, Venus tartar steak as the main course with Pluto chips side. We’re aware that this doesn’t happen in reality and that, actually, it would be rather stupid. You’d be eating moon dust or ammonium hydrosulfide (doesn’t sound very digestive) or something with an astro-complicated name. Urgh.
That’s why planets are not edible, just observable (yep) and even if these ones have a tasty look, they’re nothing more than the wonderful compositions of German studio Foreal, a creative team formed by Benjamin Simon and Dirk Schuster. Pure genius. With this pieces they wanted to show the surrealistic side of the anatomy of the planets; the yoghourt planet, the chewing gum one and the dark oil painting one (not recommendable). Foreal. Because they’re worth it.
