The Oreo isn’t just a cookie!

When it comes to Oreo cookies, everyone has their preferred method of consumption; some like to twist them apart and lick off the cream filling, while others opt to dunk them in milk and gobble them whole. But for artist Judith G. Klausner, the Oreo isn’t just a cookie; it’s a canvas. Klausner has created a variety of carved Oreo cookies to resemble antique cameos, as part of her “From Scratch” series, in which she juxtaposes modern conveniences, like packaged food, with ancient handicrafts, like embroidery and home-cooking, to make a statement about how today’s mechanized food production allows women to pursue life beyond domestic duties. Klausner says, “The food on our tables may not be as tasty as it once was. It may not even be as wholesome. But it is important to take a step back and recognize the trade that has been made, and that what we have gained is not to be undervalued.” It may be impossible to look at an Oreo cookie the same way again!
