What It Is: Flat lay photographs made of food, leaves, and rocks.
Who Designed It: Kristen Meyer is a multimedia artist working primarily in household-found objects, including food, foliage, and various bits of broken things. Her career has spanned interior decorating, floral design, and window design/prop styling.
Why It's Cool: One, she's playing with food, which is always cool. Two, she's creating simple patterns using repetition and scale by varying the types of food used. Three, she doesn't go out to purchase materials for her art—it's all right there in front of her, whether in her kitchen, garden, or neighborhood. In other words, she gives herself time to explore what she can do with what she has. Simplicity at its best.
