Bread Mosaic Made Out Of 3,053 Pieces of Toast

    This is disposable art at best. A mosaic made out of over 3000 pieces of toast. Swedish husband and wife duo, artists Gustavo Aguerre and Ingrid Falk have created, The Toaster.

    The Toaster, which was made for Galeria Milano, is another work where bread is used and its symbolism is questioned.
    The Toaster is a large picture, seven metres long and four and a half metres high, totally made from bread toasted in different temperatures and for different lengths of time to reach the different nuances that occur between black and white, ochre and rust. It took seven days of work and several friends and their toasters to prepare the 3.053 pieces of toast necessary to build the gigantic mosaic, which viewed up close, resembles a beautiful abstract picture but when viewed from a distance most closely resembles a photograph of a toaster.
