A tray for serving, examining and over-thinking food.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

We take on different roles in life, careers, situations and contexts which influence our perspectives and ways of perceiving. Something is called meat in one situation, while it is called a dead animal in another. Something that is an exciting chemical experiment from one perspective is a cheap food product from another.

 

In this piece, I try to merge perspectives to help generate a more complete and layered view about the food we eat by bringing the thought, reflection and study of our roles as scientists to the dinner table. The magnifying glass invites you to study the food, take a closer look and start asking questions. The flat plate without border hints at placing and consuming the food with

thoughtful care.
