Art or Waste? by Mika Anderson

Check out the entire set of photos from Mika Anderson’s amazing “Splashening” shoot and a wider range of fruit splahes here.

I had mentioned on Friday that if you’re going to waste food, you may as well make art with it. These beautiful shots certainly fit that description.

From a waste perspective, however, I prefer the water to the milk. But in this case, there’s no use crying over spilled milk.

    Milk is replenishable where as water has to be purified before it can be reused. Besides, who said the artist didn’t eat it after? I could continue, but I’m not even going to bother. Logic doesn’t get through to you people.

    I tried to combine both an admiration for the photos and a only tiny bit of regret for the lost milk. I guess that didn’t get across.

    As for milk being replenishable, a good amount of energy, time and money go into feeding dairy cows. And then fossil fuels are spent transporting it to the store and your home (unless you pedal or walk there). It’s not as if milk rains down or melts from mountain ice caps like…water. You make an interesting point, but haven’t cornered the market on logic.

    As for “eating” the spilled milk, well…that doesn’t sound very logical either.
