Cake Sculptures Carved From Sheets of Chocolate by Miami-based Artist Jose Margulis and Dinara Kaskp

Art, Foodnicole ziziComment

“The works of artist, José Margulis have been transformed into edible choclate treats by architect turned baker Dinara Kasko.

The Kinetic Tarts are the result of a collaboration between Kakso and Margulis, who worked together to create edible versions of his artworks for food publication So Good.”

“Margulis, a Miami mixed-media artist, forms his sculptures from layers of colourful plastic sheets – creating a geometric pattern that changes depending on the viewing angle.”

"I tried to transform his creations, made of plastic, aluminium and acrylic, into something edible, using basic techniques and ingredients," said Kasko. "Yet, I wanted to preserve his message and feel."

"It had to be an installation-performance where the art was created by José Margulis and then transformed by me into an edible piece of art which would be later consumed – thus disappear," she continued. "I was transforming the object of art into something edible that would later perish, while emphasising the ephemeral art, its fleetingness in our life."

Women-only co-working spaces are opening across the world. In effort to push for gender equality. Workspaces and clubs geared towards women, like Seattle's The Riveter, Toronto's Make Lemonade, London's AllBright and New York's The Wing, opened. Spaces are changing the way business women work. The founders say these spaces allow for "women to thrive in a often male dominated space."

Recently, I had the pleasure to sit down with Aaron J. Jackson from the Fuck Going Out Podcast. We speak on my journey as an artist, designer, and entrepreneur. Some of the topics we go over such as my upbringing, how I got into art, planning events, and transitioning from graphic design to designing products.

Like I told Aaron, this interview is something special to me. This is the first interview where I am recorded live (so you get to actually hear my voice!), but this is also the first time where I speak on how I got into the industry and talk about projects I am working on and what inspires me to create!

There are not many podcast that speak on the different creatives in the industry outside of music. I believe this podcast is neccesary today to give other creatives to voice their beliefs, ideas, and opinions. So shout-out to Aaron and the FGO team for bringing this to life!

The podcast is available on FGO on Apple Podcast, as well as Soundcloud. Check out the link below to hear it on Soundcloud!
