Madrid-based photographer Esther Lobo, aka FahLoSue, has embarked on a personal project known simply as Rorschach that uses various food items to create works of art inspired by Rorschach inkblot tests. Each frame is a unique creation by the artist herself experimenting with splatters of condiments, yogurt, pudding, and other edible goods.
Lobo presents each of her arrangements without any post-production magic to alter the design. By simply using her hands to smear the palatable ingredients on a plastic plate, she was able to form interesting shapes and patterns. Due to the flexibility of her canvas, Lobo proceeded to fold the plastic plate in half to attain a wonderful sense of symmetry, just like the Rorschach test.
Upon completing each of her handcrafted images, the artist explains: “Finally I have placed the source of the stain over the symmetrical image, and so documented the psychological portrait of each food stuff.” In the end, it is up to the viewer to decide what they see in the stained splashes of food.
