"Chips, chips will tear us apart again"

What do you get when you give a music-and-design-geek a laser and too much spare time?

Last weekend, it was a tortilla-chip recreation of Joy Division’s iconic Unknown Pleasures album cover. I like to call it the “Post-Punk Party Platter.” :grin:

For reference, here’s the original. Even if you’re not a fan, you may have seen references to it in popular culture. It’s actually a visualization of energy detected from the first pulsar detected, and there’s a great article on it here.

Eighty different layers, two cut from each corn tortilla, then fried in oil and arranged in order (I engraved a location 1-80 on each tortilla).

Cashew?

That takes me back. I think my late ‘80s t-shirt of the album cover would no longer fit. Too many crisps have passed this way.
Oh, excellent laser skills by the way!
