An interesting art exhibit by an artist named Daniela Edburg, showing women dying at the hands of food (mostly).

Below is Death by Gummi Bears:


Like a lot of art, I’m not sure I "get" it, but I am intrigued by it.  The artist explains her work:

It’s not really about the products, but the relationship of love and then hate that we have with them. When you look at a beautiful package of Oreos everything is new and shiny and attractive, and there is the promise of the sweetness and the pleasure, and then you go and open it and eat it and all you have are a stomachache, crumbs and garbage.

Well, ooookay then!
