Mom and dad may not have yelled so much about not playing with your food had they known you could turn it into a career. Melbourne-based photographer and art director Domenic Bahmann has done just that. Using a variety of edible goods, Bahmann creates sculptures of every day objects and animals including an octopus made from a banana peel and a lounge chair comprised of crackers. So the next time people give you strange looks while you build a tower from leftover fries, tell them you’re simply exercising your artistic vision.

Scroll through the gallery above for some of Domenic Bahmann’s best food sculptures. All photos via Flickr/Dom Friday.
