The Paleontology of Chris Wildrick Is Overrated: Dino Cookis, 2013, decorated cookies.

Chris makes a bunch of dinosaur-shaped cookies and asks people to decorate them with icing, sprinkles, etc.

This follows in the footsteps of other projects that investigate what people think dinosaurs looked like, and how they illustrate them, but probably falls more in the realm of people just letting out their enjoyment of dinosaurs in a full-fledged paroxysm of decoration. Part of this whole series deals with why we like dinosaurs so much; why they are so popular. Dinosaur Cookies takes advantage of that cultural goodwill to bring out people's inner artist.


So far all the cookies were made by a local kindergarten class at Ed Smith Elementary School. Future instances will be done with other ages.
