Food Sculpture

Eating goes beyond a cultural and political act, it is a necessity beyond whim. However, we do little to assimilate certain ethical understandings about our relationship with food.      
Through food waste and reclaimed elements, a tangible reflection is made about the respect for raw materials, natural resources and their future. Do we produce more or waste less?
This is our first approach in addressing issues around the production chain, specifically the amount of water going to waste with our residues left unwanted. By illustrating the similarities and the ways we use and abuse resources, we are asking ourselves if we’re taking what we want or what we need.
