tv show (food science) art

These food science illustrations were created for (featured in) Bravo’s Top Chef Masters Season 3 “Blinded Me With Science” Episode. The food science topics are: Viscosity, Emulsion, Elasticity, Maillard Reaction & Acidity.

Though used as Hollywood backdrops, they are neither flimsy nor fake, but both educational and scientifically correct, explaining the concepts at molecular levels.

The illustrations were developed independent of the show, but with the knowledge that they were intended for a general TV audience, and specifically for a show which featured high school science students. Thus the amount of information displayed was based on an intuitive guess as to how long the camera would span over them, and what level science high school students could understand.

The colors are based on food colors. The prints were as bright as the designs; they look darker/duller on the show because of the lighting/atmosphere.
