We have often wonder how much fruit and veg, and in turn, money we waste annually because of rot. It seems as though we are continually forgetting and then later finding in the back recesses of our refrigerator the long forgotten objects of nutrition. As it turns out, our ancestors had it figured out, and Korean artist Jihyun Ryou has decided to explore history's lineage for keeping food fresh for her latest project. At first, after just seeing the pictures, we didn't understand, but after seeing the video (posted for convenience after the jump) we think that this idea has legs. It also doesn't hurt that it looks as good as it does. You really have to see it, and have it explained, to fully appreciate this, so please take the time to watch the vid. You'll be glad you did.
