Today I’m going to teach you two really cool methods of making art. This is art that I invented, purely serendipitously while doing nothing more than living the bachelor life. I call it “Bachelor Art.”

The art in this first post only takes about four minutes to create when all is said and done. Total cost of materials is about $0.50.

First, what do you see when you look at this photograph? Is it some strange sea creature? Perhaps a microscopic organism?

Okay, I tricked you. This is actually part of the finished work of art. I call it “Reaching Out”.

Making art like this is simple. First, get an individual pack of Easy Mac.

Next, dump it in a bowl.

Then, add 2/3 cup of water.

Finally, nuke it in the microwave for three minutes and forty seconds. When it’s done, it comes out as a beautiful work of art:

Don’t ask me how it works. Don’s ask me why when you pull it out of the microwave all of the noodles are standing on their ends. They just are. And it’s beautiful.

[sigh] Yep. Just one of the many perks of being a bachelor and not eating real food.

If you enjoyed this edition of Bachelor Art, I posted a second Bachelor Art post today that will knock your socks off. I call it “Ice Sculptures.” Click here to check it out.

PS. I’d love to hear your comments. Many people consider food to be art. Have you ever happened upon accidental art?
