With Cookie Monster’s recent tour around NYC’s most famous art museums, it seems the cookie has been making a push to infiltrate the art world. The Creators Project has a story on the designer Yona Lee’s new piece Yummy Moon, which also merges art and cookies (specifically, Nilla Wafers) as well as the moon, achieving delightful results.
The shortest lunar eclipse of the century may have come and gone this weekend, but the tastiest one thus far is alive in NYC-based designer Yona Lee’s celestial new artwork, Yummy Moon. In Lee’s world the moon isn’t made of cheese—but instead, Nilla Wafers. 450 of the cookies were munched to create an accurate chart of all the moon’s phases arranged into one giant lunar surface, with the help of a projector to shape and arrange each morsel.
