Chocovision: Time-Lapse Art from Michael Recchiuti

Posted By on Mon, Apr 5, 2010 at 11:24 AM

We're pretty mesmerized by "Eat the Paint," a creative project by artist Mark Alsterlind and chocolatier Michael Recchiuti for the nonprofit organization Food From the Heart. The eight-hour process of composing edible art has been time-lapsed into less than four minutes. No stranger to playing with chocolate in different mediums, Recchiuti has also fashioned Lara Croft-esque haute couture out of cacao for the annual Chocolate Show in New York.

He's also quite the triple threat, since he also composed the original music in the video with pal Jim Fairchild. Read more about this project on Recchiuti's blog.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
