AUTHOR: Norwegian visual artist Christopher Jonassen.
DESCRIPTION: Celestial bodies come out from the darkness of space. Their different colors and patterns seem to express the diversity of planets found in the universe. This is what you want to see, but Christopher Jonassen’s photographs are way more down to earth. These images are actually the bottoms of frying pans, slightly photoshopped to remove the handle and preserve this perfect “sphere”.
AMUSEMENT RATE: Devour, the title of the series, means “to eat up greedily”. The used up pans are indeed showing the diversity of our eating habits. While some are covered by a thick layer of crust, some others are look brand new. Devour can also signify “to destroy, consume, waste”. Could these greasy pans convey some kind of message on our overconsumption of food? We let you decide.
