The Origins

The Origins explores how food can bring people and cultures together. Sharing recipes and foods is something which happens across the world. In an attempt to show how much we have shared, I researched into the origins of various foods. In doing this, it is clear that what we thought native to our country has indeed come from all over the world. One food stuff from each of the continents has been focused on (with the obvious exception of Antarctica). To accompany the foods, an object is added to indicate the relevant continent.

 

As a way of being recognised, aesthetically, I composed the images in a renaissance style. This was juxtaposed by a modern form of printing, on aluminium dibond.

 

Overall, this is a study of the movement and sharing of cultures, the connection people have by what they eat.
