What To Do With Those New Triple Doubles: Oreo Cameo Art

by

The new Triple Double Oreos weigh in at about 100 calories and 1.5 grams of saturated fat per cookie. Are you sure you want to be eating them? Instead, you might be inspired to turn them into art. Take a cue from artist Judith G. Klausner, who transforms regular ol’ Oreos into dainty one-of-a-kind cameos.

“The ‘spark’ came from a silly joke in my head,” Klausner tells us. “I was looking at a package of Kraft-brand food and thought to myself, ‘I wonder if I can make crafts with Kraft?'”

Why didn’t we ever think of that?

“I try to look beyond what I know, to find interesting textures, striking color contrasts, and structural configurations that lend themselves to craft pursuits,” Klausner explains. “I have long been interested in how bound up the histories of both food and craft have been with gender, so combining them clicked for me.”
