Yummy Moon by artist Yona Lee uses 450 partially eaten Nilla Wafers to depict the different phases of the Moon. A photo on Lee's site shows the artist using a projector to map the image and match the shape of the cookies to various shapes needed to display the Moon's phases.

When the soft drink 7-Up first came out it was 'lithiated'. The soda used to include lithium citrate, which is now better known as a mood-stabilizing drug. Similar to how Coca-Cola famously used to contain cocaine, the makers of 7-Up were capitalizing on the popularity of "medicated" soft drinks at the time.

That's what inspired this experiment. The original 7-Up did not contain a chunk of metal lithium but the end result is entertaining. The solution even ends up working as an indicator, changing from colorful to clear and back again depending on the acidity of the solution.
