Losing Your Appetite

AP/Breitbart:

POTHARAM, Thailand –Inside a dark room, realistic-looking “human body parts” are stacked on shelves and hanging on meat hooks. The place looks like a mortuary or the lair of a serial killer, but in fact, it’s a bakery.

What appears to be putrefying body parts are the bread sculptures of 28-year-old art student Kittiwat Unarrom.

“Of course, people were shocked and thought that I was mad when they saw the works. But once they knew the idea behind it, they understood and became interested in the work itself, instead of thinking that I am crazy,” said the fine arts master’s degree student.

He hopes his realistic artwork will make people ponder whether they are consuming food, or food is consuming them.

“Everyone’s life is rushed nowadays, even when it comes to eating,” he said. “When we eat, we don’t think about our health or safety, we only think of our taste buds.”
