Spiral galaxy – baking soda, curry powder, chalk, salt, sugar, cinnamon Have you ever left the lid of a scanner open to find that the background of your image was rendered black instead of white? That, essentially, was the impetus behind photographer Navid Baraty ’s latest project WANDER Space Probe . Using an Epson photo scanner, Baraty carefully positions various household items, many of which are edible, on the document table. Cooking ingredients like baking soda, sugar and cinnamon act as distant stars and nebulas while glasses containing milk, water and food coloring create the planets. Once everything is aligned properly Baraty hits the scan button. The photographer describes his project as “Cosmic explorations of an imaginary space probe.” You can follow Baraty’s fictional space probe and its adventures into depths of the unknown on Facebook and Instagram .
