I Was Fooled,


 looking at these pictures, like this sliced tin of lip balm,

 or mosquito coils,

 I thought I was looking a photographs,

 especially this translucent water pistol,

but they are not photographs at all, they are expertly painted acrylic painting of everyday objects, that are thinly sliced and presented as if they were sashimi, by graduating art student Eda Yoko presented her ongoing series “Sashimi of Things” as part of her senior thesis, Eda, who graduated from Musashino Art University from the Science of Design department, attempted to present industrial design as food using sashimi as a metaphor, and here I am fooled again by paintings that I thought were photographs!
