Hungry for more synesthesia? Carl Warner is a UK-based foodscapes designer whose mediums are food and photography. Quoth Carl:

I tend to draw a very conventional landscape using classic compositional techniques as I need to fool the viewer into thinking it is a real scene at first glance. It is the realisation that the scene is in fact made of food that brings a smile to the viewer, and for me that’s the best part.

Who wouldn’t love a Broccoli Forest? (4% of adults, apparently.) Seriously, the only way to improve upon a Broccoli Forest is to add a Broccoli Treehouse.

Warner spends a lot of time planning each image, which means he spends a lot of time staring at vegetables in supermarkets. However, he “is careful to point out that finding the right shaped broccoli to use as a tree is an all important task.”

As well it should be.
