Adam Hillman: rainbows and food

… among other things in the work of this assemblage artist. Both in one work:

(#1) rainbow lollipops

Hillman’s rainbow works are typically multi-color displays not necessarily organized into the conventional rainbow hues or arranged as in the Pride flag.

From the Colossal blog on 1/6/17, “Tiny Colorful Objects Meticulously Organized by Adam Hillman”:

If you need a dose of color (and sugar) injected into your Instagram feed, the account belonging to Adam Hillman is probably your best bet. The New Jersey-based visual artist sifts through multitudes of colorful everyday objects and foods which he organizes into zen-like patterns, towers, and gradients.

Four more rainbow assemblages:





And one example of a non-rainbow food assemblage:

(#6) S’mores

On the food and its name, from Wikipedia:

A s’more is a traditional nighttime campfire treat popular in the United States and Canada, consisting of a fire-roasted marshmallow and a layer of chocolate sandwiched between two pieces of graham cracker.

S’more is a contraction of the phrase “some more”. One early published recipe for a s’more is found in a book of recipes published by the Campfire Smores company in the 1920s, where it was called a “Graham Cracker Sandwich”. The text indicates that the treat was already popular with both Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. In 1927, a recipe for “Some More” was published in Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts.

The contracted term “s’mores” appears in conjunction with the recipe in a 1938 publication aimed at summer camps. A 1956 recipe uses the name “S’Mores”, and lists the ingredients as “a sandwich of two graham crackers, toasted marshmallow and ​1⁄2 chocolate bar”. A 1957 Betty Crocker cookbook contains a similar recipe under the name of “s’mores”.
