    Food for Thought

    Food for Thought is a project that explores and questions the nature and meaning of food in contemporary and historical contexts. Through the exploration of the still life as a photographic genre, this project features a series of images that play with and challenge the pre-fabricated semiotics of food, and it studies our individual and collective relationship with food. Food for Thought investigates how certain foods are linked to cultural practices and historical themes, such as environmental sustainability, gender performance and socio-economic issues. The project not only plays with the possibilities of elevating food to an art form by stripping it of it’s original purpose, it also creates visual metaphors that comment and question the role of food in our lives.
