"I often dressed up as a housewife"

Art Web Urbanist has a wonderful selection of modern interpretations of classic paintings (Star Wars!) and not all of them are computer generated as the vegitable artist Ju Duoqi explains:
"I often dressed up as a housewife, leisurely strolling to the market in a serious search for fun. I would often pace in front of the vegetable stalls, picking things up, thinking and putting them back, trying to figure out which positions made them more interesting. The different types, shapes and colors of the vegetables, with a bit of rearranging, can make for a rich source of imagery. Fresh, withered, rotting, dried, pickled, boiled, fried, they all come out different. I no longer needed a model, as they all became actors and even props."
