Madrid-based photographer Esther Lobo stumbled upon the idea of recreating classic images of Rorschach tests with food quite accidentally, according to Junk Culture. But her series, titled Rorschach Food, was developed in a pretty classic Roschach way. “I dropped the food over soft plastic plates and then I bended them to obtaine the symmetric stains,” she says. “Finally I placed the source of the stain over the symmetrical image, and so documented the psychological portrait of each food stuff.” Incorporating things like ice cream, mustard, pasta sauce, and, uh, squid ink, Lobo’s series perfectly captures the essence of those original images. I’m not sure if I see anything in these pictures, but I do know that I’m suddenly starving.
