The Creativity Project is an ongoing celebration of our ability to transcend the norm, challenge rules, and express ourselves in new and different ways. What is intriguing? Innovative? Let's share! For now the focus is on art, design (of all kinds), dance, fashion, film and architecture. firstname.lastname@example.org

Food for Thought
When we think of food, most of us focus on keeping it off our clothing. Delighting in the materiality of certain ingredients, Korean artist (photographer) Sung Yeonju takes a different approach. She is intent on challenging the meaning and traditional function of what we wear, what we eat and what we call art. She creates amazingly beautiful apparel out of mostly raw fruit and vegetables. Using radishes, tomatoes, bananas, lotus roots, cabbage, mushrooms and more, she forces us to reconsider our ideas about food and fashion. She helps us see beauty anew.
