Watermelon is originally round and circular, square watermelon was invented by the Japanese farmers to save their space of the refrigerator. Square watermelon isn’t genetically modified watermelon. As it turns out, the watermelons themselves are entirely natural. Farmers insert the melons into square, tempered glass cases while the fruit is still growing on the vine. Watermelon itself is simply as a round, circular or long in shape, but some artists carved the watermelon into a piece of art for everyone to enjoy their artwork. This carved watermelon series show the relationship between design and the mathematic works from the artists and the farmers.
