What are Americans’ most notorious addictions? If you answered fast food and awesome gadgets, you’re right (we would also have accepted online shopping and Kim Kardashian, but that’s a whole other story). Enter Deep Fried Gadgets, a delicious and highly un-nutritious project from Brooklyn-based photographer Henry Hargreaves, working in collaboration with food stylist Caitlin Levin, which we first spotted over at Design Boom. The title pretty much speaks for itself — Hargreaves deep fries electronics and then sets them out for consumption and photographs them. We think this project is a pretty effective (and hilarious) critique of consumerist culture, not to mention cool to look at. Click through to check out photos from the series, and then head over to Hargreaves’s website to browse through even more of his work.
