Aron Filkey and Mate Moro are a super talented duo that is one part graphic design, one part photography. One part post-modern design, one part surrealistic photography. One part Los Angeles, one part Switzerland. The two creatives are both European collaborators who make some really rad stuff although Filkey is local and Moro is in Zurich. Because it is Food Day Wednesday and we’re always hunting for local food/art mashings, we would like to show you some work the duo did for last year’s Örkény Festival as it is totally fun, bright, and gravity bending.
Filkey and Moro created a series of images that sees tools and food slightly at odds as they balance or confront each other in nearly impossible ways. You have some meat stacking, some fennel decorated with a balloon, a magnifying chilling in a plastic cup, and even a lint roller holding a plastic fork up who is in return the base for a close pin with a noisemaking balloon at the tip. We’re not entirely sure what the Örkény Festival is (We looked it up a few times but couldn’t get a clear answer.), but these images are so light and magical because they defy the laws of physics in a fun, foodie, effed up sort of way. They’re also very graphically now which surely is the because of Filkey’s direction.
These images are undeniably fun and actually remind us a lot of the food work that photographer Stephanie Gonot has done. We’ve been wanting to share more work like hers on a Food Day Wednesday for months now and haven’t been able to because food photography is so boring these days. What a shame! Anyway, thank you Aron Filkey and Mate Moro for making food art/photos/promotional materials fun again. We hope you keep it up.
