That spot where the food and art worlds collide is a really odd place. And I find I'm always fascinated by food-related art projects, even when (especially when?) they're over the top.

You might know Brooklyn-based New Zealander Henry Hargreaves from his previous projects, like the old-fashioned typeface he created out of streaky raw bacon, or the Chuck Close-inspired portraits cobbled together with shades of burnt toast. For his newest project, Deep Fried Gadgets, he collaborated with stylist Caitlin Levin, to present food porny pictures of battered and fried iPads and Game Boys.

You can see more strange, deep-fried beauties over on Mirko Credito's Flickr stream . The fried tech here is styled quite differently. The result is less food-porn, and more haunting (see above, the gun). Do explore Credito's site, which has deep-fried Darth Vader masks, dolls, and robots.
