Digital three-dimensional renderings have come a long way. So far, in fact, that it’s often difficult to tell if something is real or rendered. South Korean digital artist/sculptor Kyuin Shim capitalizes on that obscured distinction in his digital sculptures. Focusing on dysmorphic views of the human body, Shim creates these fascinating, and in some ways, disconcerting human forms. There’s a paradox at play here… a certain beauty, yet depravity in the way Shim morphs these figures in unexpected ways.

London design student Chris Godfrey’s twisted creation “All in One” serves as part of a dissertation on the ridiculous paradox presented by today’s age of consumerism: our general love of “quality” and “luxury” products, juxtaposed with our greater obsession with convenience. If you were to read this 12-course meal on a menu, you’d surely salivate. But Godfrey stuffs every course into a gelatinous mold that takes on the shape of the iconic tin can. Perhaps it’s best left for the quintessential foodie’s fallout shelter? Here’s what’s on the menu:

• Selection of local cheeses with sourdough bread
• Pickled kobe beef with charred strawberry
• Ricotta ravioli with a soft egg yolk
• Shitake mushroom topped with filled peppers
• Halibut poached in truffle butter in a coconut crepe
• Risotto foraged ramps, prosciutto and fresh parmesan
• French onion soup with fresh thyme and gruyere cheese
• Roast pork belly and celeriac root puree
• Palate cleanser, pear ginger juice
• Rib eye steak with grilled mustard greens
• Crack pie with milk ice cream on a vanilla tuile
• French canele with a malt barley and hazelnut latte
