AC: Mini Blueberry Polka-Dot Pancakes / Yayoi Kusama and Creativity Day!
Updated: Aug 25
I was inspired by Yayoi Kusama for Creativity Day! She is one of the most famous living contemporary artists. She sees the world differently than everyone else -- which mostly includes polka dots! :) I had seen some of her art in the past and then a video from the Tate on YouTube was recommended to me and I re-learned more about her. Yayoi Kusama is obsessed with polka dots. Another video on YT from the art thinker which depicts her life as a cartoon was also recommended to me, cute! She was also featured in the Art Assignment's YT video: Fierce Women of Art. The videos are below.
This cute blueberry pancake dish fit with Creativity Day, as an homage to Yayoi Kusama and with the Art Cooking (AC) series -- because
I was creative with the pancake recipe (corn syrup in place of eggs and no milk, check out that post) plus the blueberries are polka dots! Get it?!?! :) Look how fluffy the pancakes are too! (More photos below.)
It also fits with Art Cooking series, where I feature food inspired by the artists or their works.
I also made a polka-dot egg and and mini-Obliteration room for it out of a cardboard box as an homage to her. Check out that post! :) Yayoi Kusuama features pumpkins a lot in her work, which I discuss more in the other post, but I have been doing egg art, so I used an egg.
Here's a link about her use of pumpkins:
NATIONAL CREATIVITY DAY
"Unleash your imagination on May 30th for National Creativity Day!
Whether you are an artist, writer, musician, filmmaker, blogger, photographer, graphic artist, or any of 100 other creative personalities, the world is going to celebrate you and your creative pursuit. And you absolutely deserve it! Other than nature, everything within sight originated with a creative thought from someone like you!"
Here's an article about her:
I just made the pancakes substituting 1 tablespoon of corn syrup for an egg and almond milk for cow milk as I wrote about before. Then I just added some blueberries.
Look how fluffy they are! (Right photo)
