"It's an unusual Friday night at Grinder, a small coffee shop in Toronto. There's an alien in someone's cup, hearts in another and someone else sees their face in their mug.

"The cause of this madness is an event we created called "MEDIUM: Coffee -- Live Latte Art for Non-Latte Artists." We wanted to see what ordinary artists would do if we let them play with their food. "It was different," says Abra Dolman, a participating artist. "I can't say I've ever used coffee, espresso, or milk as a medium before."

"The winner in the final round, Stefan Berg, used syrup to draw a portrait of one of the judges, glasses and all. However, the newly-indoctrinated coffee artists aren't the only ones using food in unique ways. Whether for consumption, beauty, art, or hacking purposes, Maker Culture is meeting food everywhere."
