Kevin Van Aelst's photographs display scientific and mathematical concepts using donuts, eggs, candy, and cake, creating images that are both informative and mouth-watering.

Much of Van Aelst's work is focused on unconventional representations of information, and he is especially interested in using ordinary household objects to illustrate the key concepts that hold life and the universe together. In addition to his more edible works, he also uses nuts and bolts to illustrate the phases of the moon, represents a single heartbeat in parted hair, and heaps together Christmas lights in the shape of the human brain.
