This is one of my Uni project that I completed earlier on in the year. Its a 3D interlocking and modular papercraft cube version of the food pyramid.
There are 50 food cubes in total:
- oil, butter, sugar
- milk, yoghurt, cheese
- chicken, beef, fish, (baked) beans, nuts, egg
- apple, pear, banana, orange, lime, pineapple, tamarello, watermellon, kiwi fruit, mango, passion fruit, strawberry,
- lettuce, red capsicum (bell pepper), yellow capsicum (bell pepper), red tomato, yellow tomato, potato, corn, aubergine (egg plant), courgette (zucchini), avocado, onion, carrot,
- bread, shell pasta, udon noodles, instant noodles, rice, fresh pasta, dry crackers, waffles, cornflakes, rolled oats,
- water and ice
The cubes are about 10cm³ and each side is interchangeable, so you could have half mango and half yogurt cube. I created the 3D template and then applied hi-res photographic textures (of each food item that I shot) in Photoshop. And then printed them out onto 250gsm paper, scored, cut and glued them together - it took a long time to complete.
If there is enough interest, I'll upload the individual group photos at a later stage. Many thanks go to
for their assistance.
