How Instant Ramen Changed the Art World

Today we celebrate what would have been Momofuku Ando’s 105 birthday. Ando, the inventor of the instant ramen, is remembered not only for his groundbreaking invention but also for the art he has inspired. In 2000, the instant ramen was voted as one of the country’s top inventions of the 20th Century. That’s some serious brand love!

Sarah Clement and her peers at MICA created an installation tribute to the food that has sustained artists for more than half a century. Dubbed Starving Artist, this installation incorporates the ramen with artistic themes of truth and love. We salute Clement and her fellow artists for their humor and creativity, but curse them for making us hunger for not just for those delicious and cheap curly noodles, but also for our own college days.
