From October 2017 to April 2018, I collected people’s food packaging during lunch and filled them with plaster to encapsulate consumption habits that occur in the public domain. This project inspired the development of Cradle and is also featured in the publication, Hand. Food. Mouth.
Cradle is a plate-form exploration made from stacking leftover food packaging and overlaying it with clay. The interaction between hands and the newly formed plate impressions reveal ergonomic possibilities that activate both hands for engaging with the meal.
Lunch Mass and Cradle was exhibited at the California College of the Arts commencement show where it received the Curator’s Award. From 2018-2019, select pieces from Lunch Mass remained on display at the San Francisco campus.
