Lycopersicum | Tomato Food Art

Since the advent of modern agriculture scientists have reported that hundreds of varieties of seeds and animals have gone extinct. Uli Westphal is a concerned artist who wants to put an end to this trend by creating awareness through art.

In Lycopersicum, Uli's latest work, we are remindedof the vast variety of tomatoes that exist, not just the ones that have become commercially successful due to their uniform roundess and blemish-free appearance.

Lycopersicum is part of Mutatoproject, a larger work of art which explores the ''mind boggling diversity of agricultural cultivars'' and aims to rescue crops that would otherwise go extinct.
