“Oreo Cameo #9” by Judith G. Klausner


Toast embroidery, Oreo cameos, condiment wallpaper and cereal samplers

Artist Judith G. Klausner works in a lot of nontraditional mediums, but none are as appetizing as her From Scratch series. Using only bread, thread and a little paper for structural support, Klausner combines embroidery with toast to produce some incredibly fine, painstakingly realistic mold, eggs or pats of butter. She stitches “BREAKFAST IS THE MOST IMPORTANT MEAL OF THE DAY” directly onto Chex corn cereal to produce a kind of “meta sampler.” The white stuff in the middle of an Oreo sandwich cookie is the only material she needs to carve out a totally convincing cameo.

Office Excavations

The weird stuff I'm finding in the workplace

Taking over for John means, for one thing, that I'm taking over his desk. My lovely office mate, Marisa, and I decided to give the whole room an overhaul. It wasn't just the arts editor's desk that was obscured under stacks and piles and heaps and drawers full of weird stuff. It was the entire half of the room, really. We moved a gargantuan, stuffed, white chair and uncovered a squished mass of mail, books, notebooks full of scribblings and more, probably from years ago. To be fair, John inherited the state of the desk from the previous arts editor and just kept working right on top. She, I'm sure, did the same. The cool part of this is, excavating layer by layer is like going back through time. I'm going to post the random things I find as I settle in. Tonight's offering is condiments.
