Von Till Nowak:

In November 2006 Till Nowak created the image "Salad". For this image he created digital vegetable models and combined them to become a tribute to the fantastic biomechanical creations of H.R. Giger and the vegetable portraits of Giuseppe Arcimboldo.

Soon after its creation "Salad" was discovered online by Leslie Barany, the agent of HR Giger, and led to a friendship and multiple creative collaborations
