Giant Toaster Mosaic Installation (Made of Toast)

This made me smile, and the planning is pretty impressive. The Toaster is an installation art piece from FA+Art, the collaborative studio of Ingrid Falk & Gustavo Aguerre. Measuring 5 x 4.5 meters, The Toaster is composed of 2,500 pieces of toasted bread. They digitized a photo of a toaster, and represented each pixel with a piece of bread, roasted to perfection using analogs. This creates a pointillism effect—when the viewer stands close to the piece, the bread is recognizable, but when stepping back, the toaster and creator of toast becomes visible.
