A street artist in Paris is taking used, unwanted mattresses and turning them into spectacular food sculptures. “Eat Me” is the latest project from French artist Lor-K who uses abandoned mattresses as the base for her creations as a comment on modern consumption and to highlight our culture of waste.
For the last six years Lor-K has created a range of delicious looking food items including cakes, wraps, sandwiches and our favourite, sushi!
“Lor-K is a French artist working in Paris. She uses abandoned objects to create sculptures on the street.
