Cereal Art Recreates the Pyramids and Other Breathtaking Landscapes
In a series of mesmerizing photos, artist Ernie Button visualizes our favorite breakfast cereals in the form of dreamy landscapes. His Cerealism project captures the Egyptian horizon in the form of Cheerios “Cheeramids,” bales of Shredded Wheat underneath a cloudy blue sky and a lovely clover patch of Lucky Charms. Each photograph invites the viewer to observe the nuanced textures and colors of each cereal brand, taking national commodities and turning them into soft, serene images evoking wanderlust.
“When I started I really didn’t know that I would have so much fertile ground to explore,” Button told Wired. While his backdrops were often inspired by the Arizona desert surrounding him, he allowed the shape of the different cereals to guide him, hence the undersea escape (among others) below.
